Adam, Eve, Tell Me I'm Pretty, and Problems with Intimacy
See it: 24 W. Washington St.
Artist: John Ross
With a focus on humanity and its imperfections, John Ross is a sculptor who works across disciplines and mediums — from his chainsaw figures and bronzes, to cast resin objects and massive plaster pieces. His work combines a surreal sense of scale, an uncanny eye for subverting expectations and unconventional use of common materials. Ross describes the “Adam” and “Eve” pieces in this set as “neo-biblical,” being that they take a new look at traditional Bible characters. "Tell Me I'm Pretty" and "Problems with Intimacy," on the other hand, take inspiration from modern relationships.
