WHO


Amy Lange is an artist based in San Francisco, California. She is a native of the west coast, having grown up half her life in the San Francisco Bay Area and the other half in rural Central Oregon. She received her BFA in Fibers from the University of Oregon in 2009, and then taught art at a small private high school in the bay area for four years. She received her MFA from California College of the Arts in spring 2017 and is a founding member of Borderline Art Collective in San Francisco.


Statement

Amy Lange makes objects, images, and installations inspired by the surfaces of other worlds. She uses repurposed textiles as a jumping-off point to create work that encompasses the viewer, cobbling together landscapes or skyscapes which feel both familiar and dissociative. .
