Bridge Productions  is honored to present New Trees, Tim Cross’ second solo exhibition at the gallery. In the artist’s new body of work, he will continue his exploration of color, form, and material to describe his fantastical science fiction scenery and unfamiliar chromatic terrain. The title, New Trees, suggests a hint of new growth and optimism emerging from the foreign ground. As we view this new land through Cross’ fractured kaleidoscopic perspective, we imagine a new beginning.
