Amanda Ross-Ho, artist
( Anne Cusack / Los Angeles Times )
FOR THE RECORD:
Amanda Ross-Ho: A Faces to Watch 2012 item in the Jan. 1 Arts & Books section said artist Amanda Ross-Ho graduated from the master's program at UCLA. She received her MFA from the USC Roski School of Fine Arts. —
For Amanda Ross-Ho, the process of making art seems to be the proverbial riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. Reasonably, she's made art's inscrutable genesis and evolution the subject of her work.
For the audience, the widely varied sculptures, paintings and photographs that emerge exude an uncanny, inescapable charm. Whatever the form, they're like extended members of a family that share the same DNA but don't look much like one another.
Ross-Ho has shown in more than half a dozen solo exhibitions at galleries and project spaces since graduating from the master;'s program at the USC Roski School of Fine Arts in 2006. In June, the Museum of Contemporary Art will present her quirky work at its Pacific Design Center outpost.
