Michael Ross (born 1954 in Buffalo, New York) is an American Contemporary Artist, known for his small-scale sculptures. Although Michael Ross has exhibited conceptually based works including performance, mail art, video, and audience participation projects, the last twenty years have seen the artist direct his focus toward small, precise wall-mounted sculptures created from scraps, unidentifiable hardware and miscellaneous things. Michael Ross’s earliest small-scale sculpture consisted of a single upright thimble containing the dust from several rooms of his home. A small work created by the artist in 1994 made a wry salute to large-scale minimal metal sculptures like those of Donald Judd. Over the years, Ross has also created numerous unique tiny sculptures inspired by the Japanese fairy tales of the writer Lafcadio Hearn. His focus on the minuscule has justly identified the artist as, "a true scholar of the tiny kingdom" and “a pioneer of the subversive small gesture”.


Michael Ross (n.1954 Buffalo, Nueva York) es un artista americano multidisciplinario egresado de The State University en Nueva York y Columbia University. Durante los últimos treinta años Michael se ha enfocado en esculturas a escala miniatura montadas sobre la pared que se caracterizan por emplear tanto un lenguaje preciso como una variedad de significados codificados. Las esculturas son ensambladas utilizando diferentes metales y piezas mecánicas que en conjunto reasignan el significado de sus partes. El origen de esta práctica se encuentra en la obra The Smallest Type of Architecture For The Body Containing The Dust From My Bedroom, My Studio, My Living-Room, My Kitchen and My Bathroom (La Arquitectura Mas Pequeña Para El Cuerpo. Conteniendo El Polvo De Mi Cuarto, Mi Estudio, Mi Salón, Mi Cocina y Mi Baño) un dedal relleno de polvo producido por el artista en el año 1991. Para su exposición en Galería Mascota, Michael mostrara 6 obras de los últimos 6 años que describen ciudades, la imagen y su historia personal.
