The idea of a work that reflects a transient phase within the recovery of the diaspora fueled the ergonomic, soft forms here – wounds are still present, though less in number. A problem still arises, with such recovery. Scar tissue masks a sensitivity that cannot be regained; lose the human touch and assimilate into a form that is impartial to the rights of the full human experience, or retain the open wounds to live, though impaired by the cavities that may, in turn, devour the identity we wish to rebuild.

Three chairs will be on view at the New York design gallery Friedman Benda this spring. Created from deep narratives, around three centuries of the Black experience, these sculptural chairs portray the artist’s perception about the complexities of class, especially the working one, in Britain; the significance of industrial jobs in a postindustrial world, and the challenges implicit in the Black diaspora.

Recovery Chair, Signal-3, and Trauma Chair have a granular texture that Ross describes as “raw and exposed”. The long form of the Recovery piece has been finished with an organic wax “to give it freshness”; the Signal-3 has a rubberized finish; and the Trauma design is marked with signs of scars and healing, punctured with die-cut holes, then coated in a lacquer that’s been mixed with molasses. This piece weighs approximately 200 pounds!

His clothing brand began as a think piece exploring the societal issues, differences, and realities that he saw in London and in macro cities across the world. This chair collection for Friedman Benda takes the same starting point and reflects the precision and technicality that are present and characterized his clothing collections!

This is just the beginning. There will be more pieces by the end of the year, and I want to show them some.
