Roos creates life-size sculptures based on much-forgotten historical figures, bringing their stories and the residual cultural impact of these narratives to light. For the exhibition at Ever Gold [Projects], Roos presents four different representations of Yasuke, the only black Samurai documented in written history. Yasuke was likely from Mozambique: the earliest African people in Japan were supposedly Mozambican, traveling as shipmates or slaves with a Portuguese explorer. Roos builds her sculptural portraits of Yasuke with recycled tire tubes, wrapped and draped around a cast of a model or mannequin.

Inside thick bands of red, pink, and purple there were two colors that most surfers had never seen: gray and black. They corresponded to wave heights of more than feet and they sat like a pall against the coast of Japan. Professional surfer Takayuki Wakita was in his home in Tomari, Japan when the quake struck. It was the longest and strongest he had ever felt.
