Entrance presents a survey of recent sculpture and zine work by Pat McCarthy. Ceramic assemblages express McCarthy’s experiences of raising animals, constructing architecture, selling food, and farming. Idiosyncratic and poetically handmade, McCarthy’s bricolage sculptures reveal an environmental study of ritual, architectural systems, and the fostering of life. Combining the folk traditions of quilting and zine-making, the artist has transformed several of his fanzines into wall-hanging “quilts” by meticulously hand-stitching entire volumes together, creating a painterly narration of a book.
