Jennifer Cross at MM

“Jennifer Cross: Recent Work” will open at MM Fine Art in Southampton with a reception on Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m. and continue through Dec. 1.

In her recent series, Ms. Cross applies thinned fields of color onto wood before muting the surface with washes and glazes. Through a combination of random marks and deliberate images, she conjures memories of childhood, current events, dreams, and daily encounters. Her mysterious and inventive landscapes are imbued with tension, gravity, balance, and a fleeting sense of time.

Ms. Cross, who lives in Springs, received her M.F.A. from Pratt Institute and has exhibited extensively throughout the United States. She is the chairwoman of visual arts at the Ross School.
