In Sally Ross’ dense, lush landscapes you will find forests, paths and points of no return. Obsessive marks swarm over the pictures, bushy leaves, rolling hills and ribbons of green pulse about the landscape, articulating a perfect blur between the abstract and the recognisable. A three-time Archibald Prize finalist, Ross’ coolly observed portraits will mingle amidst the landscape paintings – a burlesque dancer or a dreamy lady with a haystack coiffure, looking on, somewhat indifferent to your gaze.

The exhibition space of Murray White Room will also be enhanced by a magnificent procession of antique carpets curated and selected by Bob Cadry from the families antique collection.

Providing a complex harmony and counterbalance to the paintings, the carpets become an analogy of ‘humanity’s past’ present and n

ow…. of time and timelessness. The carpets instantly transform the space with intricate decorative energy and presence. Ross’ paintings co-exist with the decorative power of the carpets’ primitive designs and their inexhaustible mysterious and complex rhythms ‘without sentiment’.

Ross has collaborated with connoisseur, rug lover and expert Bob Cadry, whose family have amassed Australia’s largest collection of collectible and decorative antique rugs since 1952.

Ross’ paintings are the distillation of her incessant consumption of art and images, they desire to renew your acquaintance with the fertile potential of conventional painting genres and the picturesque, to re-activate the imaginative possibilities and unspoken pleasure(s) of painting. Ross’ paintings become a metaphor for the everyday collision of fantasy and the real in our lives and are painted somewhere “… between (real) doubt and potential ecstasy.”

Sally Ross’ paintings can be found in the National Gallery of Victoria, Heide Museum of Modern Art as well as numerous important public and private collections.
