Statement

My practice is rooted in a tactile language of mark marking; it's a responsive process that is accumulative and gestural. Ideas are generated through movement and touch- they are felt experiences that are formulated and composed in real time. The output comes in the forms of site-specific installations and assembled sculptures- linear narratives, visual navigations evoking the sense of time, balance, impermanence and stability. I think of my body as an active participant in this creative process- orchestrating visual compositions, performing objects in a place in which the work inhabits.

Rana (American, Born 1978) is an artist living and working in Chicago. She has participated in several domestic and international group exhibitions. In 2008, she co-founded Spoke (2008-2011), an artist-run studio/project space in the West Loop of Chicago, where she served as one of the Creative Directors. Rana received her BFA in Crafts with a concentration in Fibers from The University of the Arts '01, in Philadelphia, and her MFA in Fiber and Material Studies from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago '08.
