Ross has always had an eye for detail. Drawing inspiration from abstract sculptures, in particular by Alberto Giacometti and Henry Moore, his figurative sculptures are meticulously crafted Based in West Sussex, Ross works primarily in plaster, focusing on both the sculptural form, and the character and personality of each piece Chrissi produces images from the figurative to impressionistic and abstract One constant is the ability to evoke a distinctive sense of atmosphere and mood.
