Sculpture, Collage, Painting
Marie-Thérèse Ross is a sculptor, painter and collage artist often working with paper collage as well as using wood and mixed media.
Marie-Thérèse was awarded a First Class BA in painting from Loughborough College of Art and Design. She went on to study sculpture in Germany for a year at Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Karlsruhe with the British sculptor Michael Sandle RA. She studied sculpture for her MA at the University of Pennsylvania in the USA.
Marie-Thérèse's work has been described as Magical Realism. She explores the world from within, by focusing on the human figure, the furniture that surrounds it and animals.
Sculptures are often fragmented, dismembered, or substituted altogether, anthropomorphic human features like hands and feet are fused onto chairs and stools. Her early background as a painter allows her to move seamlessly back and forth between two and three dimensional ways of working. Her work might hang on the wall, lean or sit between wall and floor, or move completely into the physical space of the viewer.
