Amanda Ross-Ho’s work is inspired by detritus: the clutter and remnants of daily existence, and the ‘negative space’ of things over looked. Ranging from sculpture, installation, painting, and photography, her work seeks to uncover the subtle beauty of coincidence and anomaly. Working from source material as diverse as newspaper articles, narcotics agency records, life aspiration manuals, and home-craft instruction booklets, Ross-Ho highlights
points of cultural ‘intersection’ to create extrinsic portraits of contemporary zeitgeist.
Throughout Ross-Ho’s work is a sense of de-familiarisation and detachment, a numbing alienation contrived from everyday ephemera. In pieces such as Seizure, a large inkjet print of drug paraphernalia snapshots is mounted on a make-shift evidence table. A representation of a representation, the illicit glamour, allure, and enticement of busted crime is laid out for scrutiny, rendered vacant and sanitised through its photographic distancing.
