    Art Brokerage: Clifford Ross American Artist: b. 1952. Clifford Ross (born October 15, 1952) is an American artist who has worked in multiple media, including sculpture, painting, photography and video. His work is in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, the J. Paul Getty Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Following an early career in painting and sculpture, Ross began his photographic work in 1995. A major milestone in his work is the Hurricane Series, begun in 1998. The black and white images in the series depict large-scale ocean waves shot by Ross from the water while tethered to an assistant on land. In 2002, in order to photograph Mount Sopris in Colorado, Ross invented and received a patent for the R1 camera, and then went on to make some of the highest resolution large-scale landscape photographs in the world. In 2005, he designed and built the R2 360 degree video camera, as well as the i3 Digital Cyclorama, with Bran Ferren and other imaging scientists at Applied Minds, Inc. These creative steps into the digital world eventually led him to 3D computer generated animation and the creation of Harmonium Mountain I, a video with an original score by Philip Glass. In 2009, the Austin Museum of Art exhibited a ten-year survey of Ross’ work "Outside Realism: Clifford Ross Photography," and "Clifford Ross: Mountains and Sea" opened at the MADRE/Naples National Archaeological Museum in Italy. In 2011, a large selection of Ross' Hurricane waves were included in "Coal + Ice," organized by Asia Society and exhibited at the Three Shadows Photography Art Centre, Beijing. The exhibition will travel to Shanghai, opening October 2015. The Zhejiang Art Museum in Hangzhou held two simultaneous exhibitions of Ross' work in 2014, "Hurricane Waves" and "Clifford Ross and Pan Gongkai: A Collaboration," a multimedia installation with Pan Gongkai, President of the China Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. A major survey of Ross' work is on exhibition at MASS MoCA titled, "Landscape Seen & Imagined," until March 2016. In conjunction with the exhibition, MIT Press will publish two companion books, "Hurricane Waves" and "Seen & Imagined: The World of Clifford Ross." Ross’ recent collaborations include a multimedia installation with Pan Gongkai, president of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, and a 3.5 ton, 28' x 28' stained glass wall with architects Mack Scogin and Merrill Elam for the U.S. Federal Courthouse in Austin, Texas. Ross is a visiting artist with the NYU Tisch School of the Arts’ Interactive Telecommunications Program, contributing editor for BOMB magazine, and editor of "Abstract Expressionism: Creators and Critics" (Abrams), and serves as Chair of the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation. His work has been widely exhibited in galleries and museums in the United States, as well as in Europe, Brazil, and China, and can be found in numerous public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City; the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
