As a disabled and chronically ill person, Ava Bock's experience with industrial plastics and rubbers has been life-saving and life-sustaining. Since these materials are so pivotal to her physical well-being, it seemed only natural for her to continue creatively using them as she began her journey toward healing her inner self. When she's not recording the results of her self-explorations through the casting and carving of industrial bioplastics, she is capturing long-exposure imagery that helps her maintain her well-being on acrylic.
