[About] "Roses" is a series made from a photograph of Timothy Cross' mother's garden at night.  
Timothy Cross paints, sands down, and burns the UV photos on canvas. Each piece is different. The concept is about memories and their transitory states. Each is a little different. Tim Cross prefers to have them acquired in multiples. He sees a diptych as "Siamese twins".

[Statement] I began making music in my teens and soon changed to the plastic arts, working in printmaking, clay, found objects and painting simultaneously. Since then I’ve explored many media and have discovered that drawing is at the center of a kind of expansive practice that I currently enjoy. I have a strong connection to the Northwest and feel that my work is heavily inspired by the culture and landscapes surrounding Seattle.

[Biography] Timothy Cross was born and raised in Seattle and Edmonds. He received his B.A. from The Evergreen State College in 1995, and MFA from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago in 2003. Cross has been published in New American Paintings twice.  He has exhibited at Tacoma Art Museum, Seattle Art Museum Gallery, and Sea-Tac Airport. His work has been acquired in private collections, as well as the King County and City of Seattle Portable Works Collection.
