The Art Portfolio of Amie T. Rangel

Amie T. Rangel’s artistic practice investigates architectural spaces and constructions, and the intersection between built systems and organic bodies. The artist is based in Visalia, California, where she also works as an adjunct professor and gallery director at the College of the Sequoia.

I really enjoy the drawing and painting works in Amie’s portfolio. The artist renders structures -- everything from single-story apartment buildings to dairy cattle facilities -- in careful, delicate detail. There’s something slightly eerie about many of these images. The artist’s drawings and paintings for THE WHEY (WAY) N: TO CENTER depict the equipment and deliberately divided spaces of a dairy farm. Devoid of the normal bovine inhabitants, these spaces and objects beg for new categorization.

As we saw in our previous feature, Amie often takes a methodical, researched approach to art-making. It appears to be an effective strategy -- I look forward to seeing more of what the artist has been producing in recent years.
