Catherine Ross ~ [21st century] Canadian
Catherine Ross was born in Edmonton, Alberta, where she grew up running wild in the North Saskatchewan River Valley. Since 1989, she has lived and worked in Lethbridge enjoying her daily walks in and around the Oldman River Valley. Sculptor, John Geer in his catalogue essay for Riding a Dark Horse, 1988, references both the dynamic edge between art and craft, and the necessity to maintain trust in one’s self as we embrace the unknown in our engagement with a studio practice. His observations remain true today as she continues in her artistic development. There is rarely a project she pursues that is not propelled by trust and driven by the pleasure that comes from making work and working. Joy and excitement drive her practice as she explores the materials, ideas, processes and techniques of art and art making. I create sculptural works that are accessible, intelligent, and beautiful with the potential to give joy and excitement to the viewer.
a recent large-scale public artwork in Edmonton titled Migratory Paths was unveiled in 2021; exhibitions of her work were held at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery in 2011, 2006, as well as a solo show titled, Stella Mare in 2000
