Therefore, I Am
Exhibition Dates: July 6, 2019 – August 24, 2019

Keeping Hope Safe
Material: acrylic, wire, collage
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.
