MATTHEW ADAM ROSS
An American and Canadian Artist currently based in Los Angeles.
Matthew Adam Ross employs the use of industrial materials and rubble to narrate the recycled infrastructure of America. The accumulation of marks that are destroyed and resurfaced become archival symbols in the ongoinginvestigation of rapid structural turn over in fashion and contemporary art. In developing these narratives of ruin, Ross continues to uncover moments of resistance, using them as viable pillars in navigating the identity of society.
