About the Artist

Dorothy Cross b.1956

Working in sculpture, film and photography, Dorothy Cross examines the relationship between living beings and the natural world. A sense of place pervades her practice. Living in Connemara, a rural area on Ireland’s wild west coast, the artist sees the body and nature as sites of constant change, creation and destruction, new and old.
