Philip G. Ross

Assistant Professor



Philip Ross makes sculptural artworks that combine natural and technologically advanced materials. The projects he is engaged with are literally grown into being, and are at once highly crafted and naturally formed, skillfully manipulated and sloppily organic.

Philip has taught at UC Berkeley and was a recent Porter Fellow at UC Santa Cruz. He received his MFA from Stanford University, where he has also taught drawing and sculpture. While working in both traditional and experimental materials, Philip also curates exhibitions on the relationship between art and science, most recently putting together a show on biotechnology for the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.
