Michael Ross

1/7

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”.

Due to their small scale the works have characterized themselves for both their precision and their cryptic Duchampian logic.
