Folktales, morals, old wives’ tales, overheard stories and the proverbial wisdom of superstition are the predominant themes and interests that are common through Ali Corder's work. “There’s a real beauty in stories handed down from generation to generation, words of advice as we make the same mistakes, repeat the same heartbreaks and share the same love and joy.”
Working on canvas, pieces are stitched together in a patchwork, displaying figuration and pattern with fragments from written works. “I feel this combination of elements allows me to communicate my thoughts to gently tell a story which I believe can be relatable to us all.”
