Amanda Ross-Ho‘s work examines economies of presentation, the mutability and materiality of context, and direct negotiations between image and object in an attempt to diagram the simultaneities embedded at the foundation of experience. Her paintings, photographs, sculpture and large-scale installation works illuminate connections between disparate elements, transparency within boundaries, and balance within the uneven terrain of hierarchy. Through an expansive and interdisciplinary approach, Ross-Ho tackles the impossible project of deconstructing local and universal totalities by endlessly sifting through their constituent fragments.

Amanda Ross-Ho was born in Chicago, IL in 1975. She received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1998 and her  MFA from the  University of Southern California in 2006.
