In the event of sculpture: An entity or group in a certain place and time are involved in a moment that could only happen to them under the circumstances.

American Medium is pleased to present Iceman Returns, a series of sculptures and wall works surrounding themes of cladding and theatrics by Andrew Ross. For his first solo exhibition with the gallery – and the first exhibition at American Medium’s Manhattan location – Ross uses geometric forms to modify the body and its devices, creating interior spaces within animated, hard-shell facades.

Using analog interpretations of digital design cornerstones, such as revolving and extrusion, Ross's forms exploit concentricity and interconnected parts. He makes passages and stages for fictitious characters, allowing his sculptures to be occupied in ways counter to how they are first perceived. These inhabitants, sculptural squatters, are energetic caricatures and anthropomorphic blobs and meshes; absorptive in their ignorance of the viewer and absorbed into each other. They suggest a distillation of conflict and event into simplified forms that perhaps only caricatures can enact; gestures of pointing and contorting, releasing energy toward each other.
