Past Artist In Residence
The Santa Fe based artist, Guy Cross, has exhibited his photo-based works at numerous galleries throughout Santa Fe, as well is the publisher and creative director of THE magazine and formerly of Edge City Magazine and The Picture Paper. In 2002, while Cross was at 18th Street as a studio artist, he produced a series of work titled “Sightings.” This was an exhibition of new and recent photo-based works that play with landscape and iconographic signage through creating discrete narratives filled with visual puns. His work ranges across the socio-political stratosphere of postmodern sensibilities. Cross “grabs” snapshots, taken out of or through a car window, rather than carefully composed photographs, eschewing carefully composed or contrived imagery. Urban, suburban and rural locations are all subject to his satirical sensibilities.
