Daniel Ross

Daniel Ross also addresses issues involving nature and landscape from an extremely different vantage point. Ross’ view of nature focuses on issues of genetic modification, climate change and the ever-blurring boundaries between natural and synthetic matter.  Represented by a series of hybrid wall-mounted works, Ross tips his hat to the craft of découpage on wood slabs that intentionally reference a kitschy depiction of nature. His oversized, hyper-artificial works involve an unusual combination of processes and materials that mesh digital images with painting and sculpture. Ross also adds a synthetic shimmer to his technically dazzling works through a process of inkjet print transfer and holographic foil. Perhaps it makes sense that Bay Area artist Daniel Ross grew up in Florida.
