"I'm interested in the emerging artificial life sciences; that something synthetic could be made to grow into something new."

Characterized by organic transformations, Alexander Ross’s paintings are inspired by artificial life and nature at the molecular level. Described by Ross as “controlled organisms,” each work swells with free formed orbs, often, undulating through fields of blues and greens suggesting sky, air, and openness. Marked with a concern for growth and pattern, his images are simple and - suitably - left untitled. Each artwork is unclassified in form, substance, and name.

Alexander Ross received his BFA from the Massachusetts School of Art (Boston). He has exhibited internationally in solo exhibitions including Galerie Hussenot (Paris), Marianne Boesky Gallery (New York), David Nolan Gallery (New York), Feature, Inc. (New York), Daniel Weinberg Gallery (Los Angeles), and Mary Boone Gallery (New York). His works have been included in group exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), Paul Kasmin Gallery (New York), Barbara Gladstone Gallery (New York), and P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center (New York). Ross has been awarded the Lewis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award in 2004 and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship in 2003.
