Amy Rathbone’s process is one of meticulous construction that occurs over an extended period of time. Each element of the work is painstakingly assembled from minuscule parts to form an immersive whole. Wire, sandbags, spray paint, ink and gouache are employed to form a novel environment, which holds its own inner logic. She has shown her drawings and installation work internationally. From 1999-2009 she worked as a draftsperson for Sol LeWitt. She has worked with inkBoat since 2011.
Amy Rathbone was born in Cleveland, OH and lives and works in San Francisco, CA.

Rathbone’s work has been the subject of many solo and group exhibitions in San Francisco, CA; Chicago, IL; Philadelphia, PA; New York, NY; Prague, Czech Republic; Wiesbaden, Germany; and Tokyo, Japan. She has also participated in several university shows including: Vital Signs at Tulane University, New Orleans, LA; Running Around the Pool at the Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts, Tallahassee, FL; and Periphery at the Oregon College of Art and Craft, Portland, OR.
