“Fruits of the Spirit” is an installation consisting of three art banners along the Garden’s Oak Allée. Inspired by Love, Joy, and Peace, they create a graceful and festive atmosphere.
Moses Ros is a Dominican-American sculptor, painter, and printmaker. Highly influenced by his direct contact with Caribbean culture and New York City street culture, his creative sources are usually gathered from urban pop culture, graphic abstract symbolism and my living memories.
The formal aspect of Ros’ work is a colorful synthesis of playful approaches to languages (Spanish English) that represent his Latino and Dominican-York heritage. His work combines printing expertise with the movement and joyfulness of life. By collaging forms and fusions of imaginary creatures with daily-life objects, Ros free interprets the contrasts, dualisms, and paradoxes so present in the Latino experience of New York City.
Ros has created large-scale public art commissions for the New York Department of Cultural Affairs, Bronx Council for the Arts, and New York City Housing Authority, plus stained-glass windows for the Metropolitan Transit Authority. He has had solo exhibitions at the Yeshiva University Museum in New York, the Paterson Museum in New Jersey, the Bronx Museum, and El Instituto de Cultura y Arte in Santiago, Dominican Republic. Ros earned a Bachelor of Architecture from Pratt Institute.
