Studio Work as a gallery analogue to Ali's work in the field.
Her work often draws on a wide variety of ancient symbols, narratives, traditions, materials, ancestral technology, art, medicine, architecture, ecology and mythology.
The primary intention of my sculpture work is to evoke senses on a visceral level. This intention often leads me to use heavy earthen materials - stone, clay, or wood placed in precarious, yet structural balance. I often bring a feminine, raw beauty and sense of ancient aesthetics and symbolism to my work as well.
