Within this surreal and earthy presentation, Bristol-based Cross merges personal, elemental and historic fragments to create a series of works untethered to any singular era, person or place. Witnessed collectively, a sense of estranged self-portraiture emerges as divergent facets of psychology, ecology, fable and history collage within each work.

Martyn Cross has has exhibited nationally and internationally, including Hales London, Marianne Boesky NY, and Ratio 3 Los Angeles.
