TateShots: Dorothy Cross | and at Turner Contemporary-Margate


Working from a remote studio on the west coast of Ireland, Cross often uses the remains of dead animals or other found natural materials in her sculptures. In this film she talks about transforming shark skins by coating them in gold and casting them in bronze, and how the coastal landscape around her inspires and feeds her art.

Following a visit to Turner Contemporary I am so inspired and impressed by the work of Dorothy Cross. The variety of mediums and quality of her work is stunning.

By chance I saw some of her print work at The Original Print Fair at the RA and again was immediately drawn to her amazing prints, before I even knew it was her work. Here are a few images of my visit:
