The ties that bind them, and their art, come from this long and deep experience with each other-this goes directly to the heart of what they have in common: a commitment to the long view, the slow gaze, and the lifelong search for what we call Treasure Island.

Tim Cross_Land and Sea

Their compositions are built by layering, tiling, and kaleidoscoping forms, photographs, and blocks of color to create intricate, prismatic facsimiles of our world. The reality of these new worlds mimics our own, but reveals something surreal or previously unseen. As a result, they gather together to form an analogous and complementary duo.

The Hammie Salon  is featuring the paintings of Kate Petty. The artist explains, “I work with the concept of liminality. It is a state that is ambiguous and hidden. In the subliminal, things are unconscious. But liminal is barely perceptible; it’s a state of being in-between. Sometimes boundaries between worlds are well defined; but liminal suggests a spaciousness, often hazy, like the transition from dreaming to wakefulness or dark to light. It is like twilight.”
