Ian Ross’ style is often referred to as “Hyperorganic.“ His practice is a freestyle form of artistic expression in which repetition of forms and patterns depict hyperactive, hyper-real, organic shapes. His work highlights the juxtaposition of Marin County’s open spaces to San Francisco’s urban density and is a response to the strong, rousing energy evident in both places. Ross paints this energy by building upon some small thing – something as simple a line or a color – with continuing applications of paint and “without the burden of intention,” explains Ross. “Energy may be our strongest sense, yet the least understood.”
