Ali Eckert’s art work is based on associatively told stories.  Thematically circling around the American myth, he drops the viewer into scenic dioramas charged with symbolic content.

Reality is enhanced into a kind of "hyper-sensory reality“ located between elements of visible reality and imagined, subconscious and fictitious elements of "another" reality.  Without giving away the narration, the figurative art piece turns into a story.

Eckert uses diverse media: painting, photography, mixed media and video installation.
