Ali Aschman creates hand-made worlds exploring emotional states. Hybridity, transformation, alienation and guilt are recurring themes. Her practice includes animation, installation, drawing and printmaking. She experiments with narrative forms through moving and still images, kinetic and static objects and sculptural tableaux. Aschman earned a BA from the University of Cape Town and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Ali Aschman’s residency is supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
