Samuel Ross: Coarse

New York City, USA

Art and design gallery Friedman Benda presents its second solo exhibition from British artist Samuel Ross.

Coarse showcases six pieces of work, which explore the history of West African furniture and brutalism, post-industrialised Western culture and modernism.

The exhibition is informed by theory of double consciousness by W.E.B Du Bois, as Ross aims to explore the meaning of objects while retaining their function, with the process of creating the work contributing to the final product.

The objects are made from wood, metal, stone, marble, turmeric, honey and milk.

Samuel Ross: Coarse takes place from 10 May to 17 June 2023 at Friedman Benda, 515 West 26th Street, New York City, New York 10001, USA.
