Amy Ross, Detail of The Fauna of Mirrors, 2016, Watercolor on paper, 26" x 19.5"
Boston-based artist Amy Ross was a religious studies major at Connecticut College and went on to earn a Master's in Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School before switching gears to study art at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Amy uses watercolor, collage, graphite, and walnut ink to produce works on paper as well as site-specific wall murals. She is interested in the idea of artist as mad scientist: combining flora and fauna to produce fantastical hybrid creatures, or “nature morphs.”
Amy has had numerous solo exhibitions, including Jen Bekman Gallery in New York; Kopeikin Gallery and Overtones Gallery in Los Angeles; Steven Zevitas Gallery and Allston Skirt Gallery in Boston; and Romo Gallery in Atlanta. She has shown her work in group exhibitions across the country, most recently at Kasher|Potamkin in New York City, Suffolk University in Boston, One Mile Gallery in Kingston, NY, and Plug Projects in Kansas City. Amy was a featured artist in Watercolor: Paintings by Contemporary Artists (Chronicle Books, 2013) and is included in the recently published Contemporary Art of Nature: Mammals (Schiffer, 2015.) Her work is in private and public collections, including the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, Fidelity Investments, Wellington Management, Simmons College, and the Ross Business School at the University of Michigan.
