Wonzimer Gallery presents STREAKIN, Joshua AM Ross’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. This exhibition highlights Ross’s drawing practice, which has been his focus for the past three years. An opening art party was held on July 21, 2023, however the exhibition runs through August 11, 2023.
Wonzimer Gallery STREAKIN
STREAKIN, is a rejoinder to adolescent fears and liberating memories represented through astonishingly intricate colored pencil work on paper. The artwork’s frame-splitting differences and morphing moments examine how things re-materialize in order to contemplate the nature of transformation.
Joshua AM Ross creates an alternate world which he visually depicts through his drawings. The drawing’s subjects take as their central point a garment configuration that mobilizes nearly impossible arrangements of clothing and bodies. In this particular series, the setting retains a dimension of living spaces in which abstract limbic forms are placed. These dimensions enchant, enhance as well as estrange mundane domestic experiences.
Joshua A.M. Ross
Joshua A.M. Ross (b. 1992, Indianapolis) holds a MFA in Art from the University of California, Irvine, and a BFA in Photography from Herron School of Art in Indianapolis, Indiana. Ross’s work explores the interplay between drawing and photography through notions of performance, occasioning sculptural and spatial interventions. His artworks incorporate creative participants, fabrics, and bodily limbs as critical focal points interlaced with representational and abstract scenes.
In tandem with his completion of a residency at Wells College, String Room Gallery, New York, 2022, and Massachusetts Liberal Arts College, Artist Lab, 2021, Ross also opened solo presentations titled Stumbling Stumbling and come inside.
