Based in Millinocket, Maine, Ken Gross is an artist primarily focused on making maps. Self-taught, Ken utilizes traditional printing methods in unconventional ways to depict geographies, a radical change from the maps that he produced as a professional cartographer over a thirty year career. Mostly working with relief prints and etchings, Ken also explores “place” through other media as well including pen and ink and watercolor. The end result, no matter the media, is a piece reflecting an emotional connection with the area being depicted.
