Ali Haselbeck is a visual artist from San Diego California, who currently lives and works in Brooklyn New York. In her multi-disciplinary practice she re-engages the often intertwined histories of art and biology, and the ways in which nature is controlled and curated to suit human needs. In a process based method she layers imagery of flora and fauna into abstract organic shapes, then sands away areas resulting in soft atmospheric traces.
The resulting amalgamated images and objects are held with care and reverence while visibly deteriorating; accepting the ephemerality of our efforts to preserve and categorize the world around us. Ali received her MFA from Mills College in 2017, and was a 2017/2018 graduate fellowship recipient at the Headlands Center for the Arts. She has exhibited work all around the Bay area, New York and Vermont.
