Biography

Andy Cross layers sundry stylistic approaches and wide-ranging narrative themes in vibrant, zippy paintings that often defy categorization. A self-proclaimed wanderer, Cross culls memories, objects, and impressions from travels around the world (lush American forests, lavish Indian temples, ascetic Japanese monasteries), synthesizing them into rich compositions that blend art historical, spiritual, and cultural references. Cross’s energetic use of color and loose gestural brushstrokes evidence an emotive, stream-of-consciousness approach to painting. As Cross plumbs the depths of his memory for meaningful experiences, figures, and symbols, he builds a body of work that is at once highly personal and broadly universal.
