“City & Self” – A group exhibition curated by Mat Gleason

The Red Pipe Gallery, “City & Self” featuring 30+ LA artists who have created new works over a 3-week period to celebrate their experience of “life in the ‘city’ and the ‘self’ within it.”  A broad spectrum of perspectives, styles, and mediums will be on display.

One of the artists in the show, Karrie Ross, a native to Los Angeles, chose to use a more collage / assemblage technique to example her feelings for “City & Self” instead of using her drawing or painterly styles. She used a mixture of mediums to further push the vibration of the art. The base was created in her standard form of layering oil, acrylic and pencil and then she topped them off with bead embellishments. Karrie started adding beads to some of her art with her last series of “52 Hands” artwork and custom made hand necklaces, reflecting her appreciation of, and fascination with, “Hands” and the energy they create.

Ross is well known for her respect of the energy that is in and around us on a daily basis. Her work joins in and enhances that vibration that we all carry with us deep within. As a point of connection to self and others…she is in constant query of “What is YOUR energy telling the world?” More of Karrie’s work can be seen on her website at or contact her to arrange a studio visit.
