About the Artist

Edward Bock is a Minneapolis photographer and artist with a degree in Mass Communications from the U of Miami in 1968.

" Who would have ever thought that being drafted into the army in 1969 to work as a documentary photographer would lead to a successful 45 year commercial photography career and a continuing love of image making."

While earning a living as a commercial photographer Ed explored personal artistic expression. His art is an observation and response to textures, iconic shapes, colors and ideas from his outer and inner worlds.

Ed varies his approach to creating art using diverse materials: rust on metal, acrylic paint, carved figures, charcoal, photo image transfers and dried plant material. Besides a paintbrush and camera, his tools include old credit cards, spray bottles, cardboard scrapers, chopsticks, and his favorite, the Dremel Tool.

“Standing at a blank canvas is like stepping into a mysterious forest all alone: it’s exciting, challenging and fun. Making or finding a path and seeing where it leads is extremely satisfying.”

Ed Bock’s art can be found in both corporate and private collections.
