Pacita Abad's Assemblages, Text by Jack Garrity

Pacita's most extensive and well-known body of work is her vibrantly colorful abstract, stitched, mixed media paintings.

Almost all of these are hand-stitched paintings embellished with diverse combinations of textiles and an array of objects and found materials. 

In addition to her stitched paintings, throughout her 32-year career Pacita constantly explored new techniques and processes, as she completed multiple artworks on a wide range of materials, creating colorful prints, paper collages, ceramic plates, painted glass, wearable art and public art installations.
