Michael Ross makes small, precise wall mounted sculptures out of scraps, unidentifiable hardware and miscellaneous things. In SculptureCenter’s ground floor gallery, Ross will present numerous sculptures, each no larger than a few inches. Combining objects that most rarely notice, and often discard, he draws attention to the aesthetics of the ordinary and the unnoticed through very specific compositions of form, color and material. Each piece requires an intimate attention and focus, transforming the spatial perception of the room.

Ross is an artist based in New York. He has presented solo exhibitions and special projects at the Swiss Institute, New York, NY (2002); FRAC Bourgogne, Dijon, France (2001); Scott Thatcher Gallery, Long Island City, NY (1999); and Centre for Contemporary Art, Ujazdowki Castel, Warsaw, Poland (1991). He has also participated in numerous group exhibitions including Sonsbeek 9, Arnhem, The Netherlands (2001); Bricolage?, Musée des Beaux-Arts, Dijon, France (2000); and Show Up at de Appel Foundation, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (1997).
