LabelCombining elements of both painting and sculpture, the work of New York artist Linda Cross encourages contemplation of humankind's place in and effect on our natural environment. This wall piece depicting tin cans and other detritus sandwiched between layers of rock reminds us that manmade products are fundamentally altering Earth's geologic structures and makes us think about the long-term impact of our throw-away consumer culture.
