Batsheva Ross           About / Contact               Works


Batsheva Ross (1977) is a female artist who was born in Jerusalem, but is situated nowadays in Brussels. In her artistic practice she adopts a contemplative approach to daily life and enlists a variety of media in order to explore the existential issues that plague her, touching upon epistemological, ethical and mystic issues. 

In the process of making, Ross normally likes to dilly-dally and agonize over projects for an extended period of time, since this allows her to suspend any final conclusions regarding the questions they raise. Yet sometimes she finds herself interspersing this long process of thinking with short-range works that are carried out in frenzy and leave no room for equivocation.

The final outcome of her practice are works that can easily be placed in the realm of symbolism or poetics, yet have a clearly performative stance as well, and have an apprehension of their own display.
