Exploration drives Ross’ practice; break down the individual pieces within his Converse collection, and you see evidence of a shift from stark, sculptural form to sensitive functionality. He manages to retain elements of an avant-garde sensibility, while embracing concerns of utility and protection.
“If volume one of A-COLD-WALL* had a linear approach, now the psyche is applied to wearable form. The extremes are filtered through humanity,” says Ross.
With the Chuck Taylor All Star Lugged, Ross translates his personal Black British Caribbean experience, Converse’s history and his design sensibilities to find a new, rugged form for the shoe.
