Ana Vizcarra (A.V.) Rankin makes art about maps, data visualization and the sensations of being in and of the universe. Her work ranges from monumental canvases to delicate, diminutive works, and considers events that occur in subatomic spacetime all the way to global and cosmic perspectives. Born in Uruguay and raised in both South and North America, Rankin received her MFA from Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and BA in art history from Temple University. Recent solo exhibitions include Cherry Street Pier in Philadelphia, the Embassy of Uruguay in Washington DC, and Instututo Cervates in Chicago. Rankin's work is held in numerous collections, including Brandywine River Museum of Art, Uruguay Cultural Foundation for the Arts, Peoria Riverfront Museum, Brooklyn Art Library, and Print Council of Australia.
