Paul Rousso American, b. 1958

Paul Rousso is an American-born visual artist. Rousso's fascination with paper - currency, advertising, newspapers, magazines - its history and use, its rise and fall, is a thematic conceptually reflected in his compositions. Despite the complexity of Rousso's artistic output, the character and subject matter of the art is familiar to audiences all over the world.

 

Rousso’s investigation of ‘flat depth’ - to render a flat object three-dimensional - is a concept that the artist has been refining his entire professional career. Through the exploration of countless complex artistic methods, including painting, printing, sculpting, welding, chemistry, digital manipulation and digital printing, Rousso’s enquiry into ‘flat depth’ was finally resolved in the development of his wall sculptures.

 

Rousso received his education from the California College of the Arts. His early career comprised of roles in interior design, Hollywood scenic art and art direction before turning his attention to pursue his C ontemporary and conceptual artistic practice. Rousso’s work is held in international private collections including North America, Europe, and the Middle East, and numerous public projects of his appear across the United States.
