Pat Oleszko makes a spectacle of herself--and doesn't mind if you laugh.

Known as the Ms Tricks of Dis Guise, she has a large body--of work--which includes many Unnatural Acts. Utilizing elaborate costumes and props, she has created lithe performantzes, films, installations that a-dress trees, knees, breasts, butts, elephants and fingers.

There have been notorious spatial events with the cast-off thousands and uttered shenanigans.

She has worked from the popular artforms of the street, party, parade and burlesque house, to the Museum of Modern Art, from Sesame Street Magazine to Ms, Playboy, and Artforum.

A much decorated artist, literally and figuratively, she has been amply rewarded for her diverse efforts pumping irony and disparately bringing home the beacon. The truth squirts.

Examples of her work may be viewed at her website,
