The Phillips Academy art department is pleased to present a selection of recent sculptural works by Andrew Ross. Ross (b. 1989, Miami) takes information encountered in daily life as the starting point for his work: popular phrases, memes, conspiracy theories, historical events, and mythology all serve as fodder. Ross develops idiosyncratic production processes in casting, assemblage, and digital manipulation; through extensive research, his conceptual materials are deconstructed and recombined, teasing out threads of possibility from the familiar and the strange.
Ross’s work has been exhibited at the Drawing Center, the Studio Museum in Harlem, Greene Naftali Gallery, and the James Gallery at CUNY Center for the Humanities. Recent solo exhibitions include Holes at False Flag, (New York; Iceman Returns at American Medium (New York); and Chassis at Clima Gallery (Milan). His work has been featured in Artforum, the New York Times, Art in America, and the Brooklyn Rail.
