Water Mill, NY
In this year’s Platform, multimedia artist Clifford Ross will engage with several areas of the Museum, including the interior entrance lobby and select locations within the Parrish collection galleries for his mixed media installation, Light | Waves. Fascinated by the force and rhythm of nature and a desire to simulate and enhance these characteristics, Ross invented and patented new camera systems, taking the photographic process to another level. For the large-scale prints on view from the Hurricane Waves series, which the artist photographed during storms off the Long Island coast in East Hampton in the 1990s, Ross recently applied a new method of digitally printing the images directly onto hand selected sheets of matching maple veneer–a wood notable for the liveliness of its grain and warm color–using ultra-violet cured ink and a commercial printer.
