Matthew Adam Ross is an artist based in Los Angeles whose works explore in depth the concepts of Contemporary Ruin, Archeology, Immediacy, Entropy, Historical Continuity, Urban Vernacular, and Synaptogenesis.  Ross is fascinated with morphology, particularly in western society, and the effect that weak historical continuity and the ambiguity of national identity have on the progression of American contemporary thought.  Ross employs the use of low brow, raw materials, such as various structural metals, concretes, paints, zip ties, and rubble to create objects of ruin that document and record the passage of time, and artifacts that mirror the metaphorical and literal infrastructural American identity.  Ross also creates assemblages which hyper intensively study and mimic immediacy, entropy, and synaptogenesis in relation to the hysterical fashion by which contemporary trends and moods are adopted and abandoned.
