OCCCA: Therefore I Am; July-August 2019

Therefore, I Am

Exhibition Dates: July 6, 2019 – August 24, 2019
Therefore, I Am is about the representation of identity in art, 
self-portraiture, constructed personas, artistic alter egos, and hybrids — sexual, political, and cultural — in painting, sculpture, assemblage, photography, video, installation, fashion, and craft.

Juror: Meghan Doherty, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art, 
Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)

Keeping Hope Safe
Dimensions: 58×36

Keeping Hope Safe
Dimensions: 58″x40″
Material: acrylic, wire, collage
Year: 2018
Description of work: A vignette of where Hope lives within us all, and others see and respond.

Statement: What is your energy telling the world?

A collaboration with nature: I direct my interests to seeking the answers for what it is like to ‘be human’. I observe and listen to how people interact. How they address their personal internal and community external interactions that create a story or unseen dialogue.

My mixed-media art is constructed from the info I gather into physical form, applying juxtapositions intended to twist perception and make changes on a cellular level. Make them to look deeper and re-evaluate.

“Ross’ art work is about the pursuit of answerable questions. She lives for them, and frames a life through the use of questions, rules and parameters.”
~Robert S., reviewer

The motion of art actually creates its own physics. Visual Art in motion touches more people with a greater impact.
