ROSS SAWYERS

LINK TO ARTIST’S CV

Ross Sawyers's art is influenced by the experience of living in increasingly smaller spaces which are in ever-closer proximity to others in neighborhoods and housing developments that grow steadily denser. The mediated situations in his photographs challenge our inherent understanding of contemporary buildings and residential neighborhoods.

Constructing models, then viewing them through the camera, allows Sawyers to exaggerate and over-state the observations of his surroundings. The environments depicted in the works are close to the actual world, but the artist deliberately refuses to make accurate copies of reality in order to surprise us with environments of the unexpected.

Ross Sawyers earned his MFA from the University of Washington. Ross’s work has recently be featured in FOAM Magazine and the Magenta Foundation publication Flash Forward 2012. His work has been exhibited recently at Unseen Photo Fair in Amsterdam and in the exhibition The Ghosts of Architecture at the Henry Art Gallery (University of Washington, Seattle, WA). His work is in the permanent collections of The Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago, IL), the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (Kansas City, MO) and the Henry Art Gallery (Seattle, WA).
