About Clifford Ross

Multimedia artist Clifford Ross creates sculpture, painting, photography, and video. For his renowned black-and-white “Hurricane Waves” series, begun in 1996, Ross captured sensitive images of ocean waves in the Hamptons during hurricanes, printed in large-scale. More recently, in order to shoot high-resolution landscape photographs of Colorado’s Mount Sopris, he invented and patented his “R1” camera. Ross’s artistic collaborations include a multimedia installation with Pan Gongkai, President of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, and a massive stained-glass wall with architects Mack Scogin and Merrill Elam for the U.S. Federal Courthouse in Austin, Texas.
