Ross’s fanciful images, derived from microscopic visions of cellular organisms, merge references to Surrealism, Philip Guston, and science fiction. In this drawing the close observation of nature generates an imaginary landscape made of strange, interlocking forms. Combining volume and flatness, nature and artifice, and abstraction and representation, Ross proposes a contemporary vision of nature at once playful and disquieting.
