Tricia E. Rangel’s artwork at csulb is simple yet, has a deep meaning to it. Her art work is made from a collection of dirt from the San Joaquin Valley of her parents backyard, grandfather’s ranch, the road, and the Smith Mountain Cemetery. She extracted the dirt from its original place to displace it. The process of making this amazing piece she had to fabricate, extract, pour, and repeat. She separates the components that make up the intelligible whole which created a new foundation to build on. Her piece represents failure, strength, vulnerability, and weakness. One interesting art piece that intrigued me was her chain art. The chains represent how many people have died and the gold chains represents the one she knew.
