Keen trainspotter, Andrew Cross travels widely in the USA and Europe following and documenting freight routes as a kind of meditation about where transport links go and what cargo is carried on them. Railway landscapes often appear similar in different countries. In this diptych he implies that the American tracks in one half converge with the German ones in the other half at an unseen point beyond the bank of trees. [20/02/2006] Keen train-spotter-turned-artist, Andrew Cross travels widely in the USA and Europe following and documenting freight routes as a kind of meditation about where transport links go and what cargo is carried on them. Finding that railway landscapes often appear similar in different countries, with this diptych, he implies that the American tracks in one half curve into the distance and converge with the German ones at an unseen point beyond the bank of trees.
