Amanda Ross-Ho received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a MFA from the University of Southern California. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles. Ross-Ho has had a multitude of solo exhibitions, including shows at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2012), Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland, OH (2014), and Praz-Delavallade, Paris (2015). She also participated in the 2008 Whitney Biennial. Inspiration for Ross-Ho’s work comes from objects in the studio and often tends to be autobiographical. Yet, when recreated for a gallery setting, the objects shift in scale, deliberately creating a skewed and sometimes hilarious or unsettling perspectives. Her works address everyday life in random order, as objects are installed on walls, floors, and ceiling to create an immersive experience for the viewer.
