In her new work with prontos and monotype methods, Cruise has been able to freely superimpose and juxtapose the human figures and animals she is currently preoccupied with in much the same way as one would when building a collage or montage. This process of visual and conceptual layering allows her to explore another aspect of communication: the non-verbal, subliminal interaction that exists between all sentient beings, which she expresses through the interactive poses and postures of subjects in her artwork.
