InLiquid Artist member Ana Vizcarra Rankin makes drawings, paintings and sculptures about travel and cartography. Recently she has been studying star maps and images captured using powerful telescopes and other technologies such as particle colliders. Combined with references noted from physical observation, these images are transmuted into art that explores the phenomenological sense of being in and of the universe.
A Uruguayan-American artist based in Philadelphia, Vizcarra Rankin has exhibited extensively and received various awards. In 2015, she participated in the Barnes Artist Residency in Umbertide Italy; in 2016 she was one of the Latin American artists juried into the first TrueQué Artist Residency in Ayampe Ecuador. Vizcarra Rankin holds an MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and a BA in art history from Temple University. Her work resides in international, public, corporate and private collections, including The Uruguay Cultural Foundation and the PAFA Museum’s permanent collection.
