Philip Ross is a graduate of the School of Photographic Arts: Ottawa. His art explores our relationship with the inevitability of decay and the possibility of renewal through transformation.

His process consists of collecting the materials for which to build temporary sculptures from roadsides, brownfields and off-trail in wilderness parks and conservation areas. Once a sculpture is photographed it is disassembled and its parts are either disposed of or reused in subsequent sculptures.

Ross’s work has been on display in solo shows at the Exposure Gallery in Ottawa and the Charles Clark Gallery in Vancouver. As well, his work has appeared in various Ottawa restaurants such as Wilf and Ada’s, Must Kitchen and Wine Bar, Das Lokal, and Tennessy Willems.
