“I'm fascinated by simple geometric shapes and how combining them, manipulating their perspective and applying vivid color gradients creates an endless array of transformative patterns.”
Ross Ozer is drawn to creating work that is kinetic and vibrant. His love of quilting, ethnographic forms and tribal art inspires him to design his own unique geometric motifs. He’s fascinated with how varying the angles and intersections of patterns produces captivating compositions.
Working in encaustic and skilled in graphic design and digital fabrication, Ross uses custom stamps, stencils, digital printing and traditional printmaking techniques to produce transformative art. Using a wax writing tool to apply each and every dot of pigment wax to his compositions, his unique pointillism approach results in rich textures that are reminiscent of woven fabric.
Ross has been a serial crafter and mixed media artist much of his life. Growing up on Long Island, New York, he's the kid that would get inspired going to craft shows, see an artist using pen and ink on smooth stones, and then ride his bike to the art store and buy all the materials to make his own creations. He took up quilting in college and in parallel with a corporate career that spanned over 35 years, he spent his evening and weekend hours mastering the Adobe Creative Suite and a whole variety of mixed media techniques that he now gets to passionately employ on a full-time basis. He splits his time working out of a studio at Artisans Asylum in Boston and his own studio in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
