Dean Cross

Dean Cross - Artist

‘This print is a double portrait of Sidney and Sunday, made by scanning both sides of a single oak leave that I stole when I first visited Heide. I had this idea about what that tree had witnessed—an idea about their kissing underneath its shade and the eternal return of deciduous trees and their continual regeneration.’

Dean Cross was born and raised on Ngunnawal/Ngambri Country and is a Worimi man through his paternal bloodline. He is a paratactical artist interested in collisions of materials, ideas and histories. He is motivated by the understanding that his practice sits within a continuum of the oldest living culture on Earth, and enacts First Nations sovereignty through expanded contemporary art methodologies. Dean's exhibition Sometimes I Miss the Applause opens in Heide's Project Gallery on 5 February.
