“Creating art is a continual learning process about myself, those around me and the complexity of this world,” artist Ali LaRock says of her work. A native of New Town, ND, LaRock received her bachelor’s degree in painting from Minnesota State University, Moorhead in 1998. She currently resides in Bismarck and works primarily with painting, printmaking and mixed media.
“A duality exists in my work,” LaRock continues. “Issues with adult complexity are depicted with a childlike simplicity. I hope to [use this approach to] challenge the people who view my work to see things from multiple perspectives and to look past the surface to learn more about themselves and the world around them.”
