I had the pleasure of meeting Catherine during her short visit to Milwaukee. I find her work to be a breath of fresh air in its playful nature and sophisticated sound. I spent an hour on her site on my first visit. enjoy! IFO is a must view today.

Catherine Ross is currently showing her videos at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, Layton Gallery (Milwaukee, WI)
Trilling will be on view:
October 19th - 4th, 2007
IFO will be on view:
November 5th - 18th, 2007

Catherine Ross works in video and photography, framing gestures of performances that often go unnoticed in their original context. Isolating the movements of humans and/or objects, her videos create new musical sequences that reveal an inseparable relationship between motion and sound. Here she finds that movement reveals an inherent awkwardness, a humor that echoes our own vulnerabilities. Her work has been presented in exhibitions and festivals internationally, including venues in Brazil, Finland, Ireland, England, Canada and the United States. Ross attended the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture in 2002, the Atlantic Center for the Arts in 2003 and received a 2005-06 residency from The Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation. Ross was recently awarded "Best International Short Award" at the 2006 Darklight Festival (Dublin, IRELAND). She received her BA in studio art from Dartmouth College in 1994. Catherine Ross lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
