Ross Watson was born in Brisbane, Australia in 1962. He has exhibited in many solo and group exhibitions since 1984, including important surveys of Australian and international contemporary art at the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria, and in the Toronto and Melbourne International Art Fairs.
"Watson's work focuses on the configuration of the body in imagined and real landscapes. The refined realism of his work and the high profile of his subjects have gained widespread popular attention."
