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.

My Own Private Moon curated by Karrie Ross September 2016

This is the final hanging of the show. Deceptive it might have been with my request to paint a Moon. My curatorial vision extended not only to from the individual Moon work being created but to the final hanging of sets and the vibration of the coming-together.

The Moon theme was suggested to me about a year ago after a piece I did for the Waterworks II show in Ojai finished so beautifully, the connection I had with water, the moon, science interaciton, global warming, axis changes, and the human element spurred me on and extended my vision. My focus all along was for a traveling show, Galleries, Museums, college galleries, public spaces, please contact me with any interest, I have several ideas for extended iterations planned.
