Pizza Corner is one of many familiar sites that I’ve chosen to work from in attempting to capture the experience of walking through the city at night,” he explains. “I always work directly from places I’ve experienced in person, sometimes using sketches, snapshot photos, or painting on site en plein air. I’m exploring the way that brushstroke, colour, and loosely referenced detail can suggest a sense of place while leaving room for my viewers to project their own memories.” 

Born in Halifax, Ross graduated from NSCAD University in 2012, and has taught painting and drawing with NSCAD’s Extended Studies Program since 2014. 

He’s exhibited at many local galleries and events, including the Craig Gallery at Alderney Landing, the Anna Leonowens Gallery, 14 Bells Fine Art Gallery, Dine by Design East, Nocturne Halifax, the Ice House Gallery, and the Chase Gallery. Argyle Fine Art represents him in Halifax.
