Clifford Ross is a multimedia artist who began his career as a painter and sculptor after graduating from Yale University. In the mid-1990s, Ross became interested in photography, pioneering breakthrough techniques. In 2002, Ross invented and patented the revolutionary R1 camera, which allowed him to produce some of the highest resolution, large-scale landscape photographs in the world. His work has been the subject of international museum exhibitions and can be found in numerous public collections, including MoMA, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the J. Paul Getty Museum, Musée d’Art Moderne and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Past collaborations include his animated landscape video “Harmonium Mountain I,” featuring an original score by Philip Glass, and more recently a video installation with violinist Julian Rachlin at the 92nd Street Y. A public art collaboration with Mack Scogin Merrill Elam Architects and stained glass atelier Franz Mayer of Munich received a U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Honor Award for Ross's “Austin Wall,” a 28 x 28 foot stained glass wall commissioned for the U.S. Federal Courthouse in Austin, Texas. Landscape Seen & Imagined, a major survey of Ross's work, was recently on view at MASS MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts.
