Biography and career

Eberhard Ross





In his more abstract “Speicher” works, Ross painstakingly covers canvases, aluminium and sheets of drawing paper with calligraphic networks of lines and pattern that develop organically in a repetitive and for Ross something of a meditative process. Ross is fascinated by patterns in nature i.e spiral forms of shells, leaves, butterfly wings, plant cells. As he tries to interpret the natural ‘lines and curves’ found in nature he is also exploring how the tones and hues of colour are affected by the mark-making. His recent investigation into pale-coloured tones have produced paintings as part of the “Silent Spaces” series.


In his “Starling Flight” paintings Ross has taken film footage of the gathering of thousands of starlings as they fly across Northern Germany. His paintings are literally a snapshot of a moment in a mumuration of starlings revealing the dynamic relationship between a particular group of birds at one moment.
