Timothy Cross

Admittedly, looking at the color-separated images in Tim Cross' wall-mounted light boxes can make your eyes hurt. Using old source photos of a plane crash and construction of I-90 floating bridge across Lake Washington, he pulls apart the images into cyan, magenta, and so forth. Intentionally misregistered, these layers blur and buzz against one another. The photos seem to vibrate, reaching toward a cohesion they'll never achieve. The selection of two old images also seems appropriate for the pull-apart process: the bridge span isn't yet complete; and the wrecked plane will never be whole again. These mechanical works of man are headed in different directions, and Cross renders them in a permanently unsettled state. Also on view in the summer New Members Show is work by Susanna Bluhm, Chris Buening, Curtis Erlinger, Cable Griffith, Derrick Jefferies, Kirk Lang, Philip Miner, Timea Tihanyi, and Joey Veltkamp.
