The World's Women On-Line!

Pat Lay’s artwork focuses on technological metaphors of the human experience in the 21st Century. Her sculptures, made of fired clay, computer parts and other ready made elements, are hybrid, post human power figures that have cross-cultural references and question what it means to be human. In Lay’s collage works digital images scanned from motherboards are transformed into a new matrix. A place, created in response to our world of technological advancement and digital progress.

A graduate of Pratt Institute and Rochester Institute of Technology, Lay is a Professor of Art at Montclair State University in New Jersey. Lay has been awarded two grants in sculpture from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and a grant from the American Scandinavian Foundation, and three public art commissions including a large-scale, site-specific sculpture in the sculpture park at the Henie-Onstad Kunstsenter in Oslo, Norway.

Solo exhibitions include the Jersey City Museum; New Jersey State Museum; and Douglass College, Rutgers University. Group exhibitions include Japan, Austria, Korea, China, Norway and Slovakia, Los Angeles Center for Digital Art (LACDA), Jersey City Museum, Newark Museum, NJ State Museum, Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum, Montclair Art Museum, Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Everson Museum, and the Biennial Exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
