Orpilla_Studio Portrait_01.jpg

Patricia Orpilla is a Filipino-American artist who uses an interdisciplinary process to explore spatial and poetic connections between material histories. Her works on paper focus on the indexical value of material and process in printmaking, using collagraph printing combined with woodcuts, screen printing, and stencils to draw connections between weaving and language. Her painting process incorporates printmaking and textile techniques to generate metaphors through synthesizing material languages. 


Orpilla received her MFA from Yale School of Art and her BFA from Kansas City Art Institute. She was awarded a Fields of the Future fellowship at Bard Graduate Center in 2024. In 2023, she was a resident artist at the Museum of Arts and Design, and in 2021 a fellow at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript. Her work has been shown at FORMA Otwarta in Oleśnica, Poland; Visitor Center in Newburgh, New York; Jeffrey Deitch in New York; Kiosk Gallery, Front/Space, and H&R Block Artspace in Kansas City. She was born and raised in Kansas City and currently lives and works in Brooklyn.
