For many years, Veronica Cross’s work has been concerned with the body – particularly, the femme body – as performed, signified, commodified, and autonomous. Her early portraits of sex workers, friends, artists, self, and heroes (generally interchangeable) utilized salvaged and/or ordinary materials to enlist their poetics and trace energies. Over time, this body metaphor has expanded to include variations of geographies, plants and plant colonies, and collectives of persons as locations of alterity and keepers of trauma, joy, and knowledge.

 

The exhibition Body comprises paintings, reductive drawings, assemblage, and video informed by fellowship in healing, spiritual, celebratory, and social justice realms. Cross continues to employ collage and assemblage techniques to reintroduce the detritus of post-capital as witnesses, both foiled and fed by montages of animistic flora cut outs.
