Hung on a wall, electrically illuminated.
Visual perceptions fused in paint.
No written or oral communication necessary.
They are visual stimulation,
a point of concentration
for those who can linger
in subtle transition
of atmosphere in quietude.
Marc Ross is best known for his large color field canvases where the color is modulated by a very subtle thread of interwinding pencil lines. As the viewer approaches, the uniformity of the surface of the canvas keeps changing at a fast pace, slowly disintegrating in a myriad of very fine pencil lines. The very first perception of stillness is quickly replaced by the illusion of a constant movement, almost like a breathing surface.
