Patty Rosenblatt’s works explore time. Her installations are microcosms of the natural world, accretions of earths and minerals. She exposes them to water and air in accelerated versions of geological processes, and draws attention to the changes they undergo. The paradoxical effect of these constructions is that they slow time and create spaces for reflection and contemplation. At the other end of the time continuum, her large sculptures freeze moments and give material form to spaces presumed empty, while her prints capture matter in various stages of transformation. Rosenblatt is also known for the mural, “Healing Touches,” which she created along with families that have lost children to cancer. The mural is in the Jimmy Fund Clinic at the Dana-Farber Cancer Center.
