Martyn CrossArtist, Writer
The work of Martyn Cross provides us with snapshots and artefacts from a fictional archaeology of outsiderdom. Using paint and collage, Cross modifies found images of homely comforts into visions from the end days of the human project. In his offerings we find dirty sleeping bags, a pile of pastry bones, a spent campfire. A cast of fugitive misfits perform uncertain rites, lose limbs or grow too much hair. And when they go into hiding the effect is all the more uncanny...
