Amelia Cross

Amelia Cross (b. 1995) is a British artist based in London. Defining her work as feminist, figurative and confessional, Amelia’s practice is concerned with capturing the motions and inbetweeness within womanhood covering themes including gender, interiority, dysmorphia and longing. She works across drawing and painting as mediums in a deliberate and honest force, turning the ever-present negativity surrounding women oversharing their bodies, thoughts and desires into something tender and powerful.
