Dorothy AligBack to Artists
Dorothy Alig graduated wit her MA in Art History, Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana. She was also the Senior Conservator of Textiles and Costumes at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis, Indiana for 14 years.
Alig’s intuitive reaction when creating color, line, shape and composition for each personality trait represents an understanding that she cannot always determine the exactitude of each image, but allows the process to produce the out come. “Without getting into complicated self-analysis, the viewer is invited to consider their own tendencies towards introversion or extroversion, intuitive or sensory thinking etc.” Her process gives the viewer the ability to visually choose what personality they are intuitively, not by the title alone.
Dorothy has works in the collections of Indiana State Museum, Wabash University and Community Hospital Foundation to name a few. She is also well established within the arts community of Indianapolis and has exhibited her work extensively.
