Denise Weaver Ross is a working artist based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Denise Weaver Ross is an artist, poet, and muralist. She has designed four murals in the Albuquerque area, and her poems have been published in anthologies both nationally and internationally. As an artist, she explores her understanding of the world through images richly layered with mythological, natural, cultural and historical references. For her, the magic happens when disparate images combine to make a new and unexpected image with layers rich with hidden meaning. Denise is known for her large thematic series such as the House of Cards and I Ching series.
In the House of Cards series she reimagines a deck of cards in 56 large-scale works-on-paper in which spades become bones and fossils; diamonds become stars, heavenly bodies and constellations; clubs become trees both real and symbolic; and hearts explore her personal experiences in the matters of the heart using Tarot and Egyptian imagery. Her I Ching series combines symbolic and mythological imagery with the yin and yang lines of the 64 hexagrams from the I Ching, the 2,000-year-old Chinese divination system.
Denise has lived and worked in Albuquerque since 1996 and shows regularly at Ghostwolf and Tortuga Galleries. Some of her achievements and honors are listed below:
