Dorothy Cross @ Frith Street Gallery

17 February 2022 - 14 April 2022

Damascus Rose is an exhibition of new works by Dorothy Cross that originate in and are inspired by her time working in studios in Carrara, Italy, a Tuscan region famous for its fine marble.

The works are primarily made from a marble known as Damascus Rose, distinctive for its flesh-like hue, but the particular piece of marble she came across hails from Syria, which evoked the biblical story of the conversion of St Paul on the Road to Damascus; violent upheavals in Syria, and elsewhere, with the horror of human evacuation and the thwarted attempts by thousands forced to migrate across oceans to supposedly safer lands.
