Amie Rangel’s exhibition, ‘Dwelling’, consists of large-scale charcoal drawings on linen, mixed media drawings on paper, and stone lithographs. This new body of work represents her ongoing investigation of the organisation of spatial constructs within modern society. Rangel’s work builds on an observation-based practice that is rooted in traditional methods, which translates moments and nuances of existing and occupied structures through perceptive and expressive drawings. 

‘Dwelling’ represents a glimpse into the subtle structural and superficial changes of an apartment complex located in New Mexico over a three-year period. Rangel’s faithful renderings selectively capture inconsequential moments that often go unnoticed. Indications of occupants arriving and departing are evident in changing window coverings, basic upgrades such as exterior utility infrastructure or doors replaced or removed, and graffiti scrawled on walls, painted over, then re-graffitied. Rangel’s practice dwells upon bringing awareness to these subtleties while referencing the existing sources her drawings are inspired by. 

Presented as part of ‘drawing?’ an extensive region-wide programme of exhibitions, events and activities which aims to celebrate, explore and consider the role of drawing in art and design, science, technology and everyday life. The programme runs until January 2016 and is a collaboration between several of the North East’s universities, galleries, museums, archives, artist-led groups, artists and makers.
