FORT WORTH, TX.- For her upcoming FOCUS exhibition, painter and native Texan Rosson Crow will feature large-scale, vivid depictions of nostalgia-laden interiors that blend aspects of history with theatricality. Interior spaces are the foundation upon which the artist constructs her hotly colored, dripping tableaus, which often include Modernist architectural triumphs, such as Los Angeles Koenig House. Crows canvases also evoke the romance of a bygone era by matching the masculine environments of rodeos, saloons, and trophy rooms, with a lush, expressionist style. FOCUS: Rosson Crow will mark the artists first solo exhibition in a museum.
Rosson Crow is an artist living and working in Los Angeles. Crows large-scale, raucous paintings have been described as inspired by diverse references-Baroque and Rococo interior design, cowboy culture, Las Vegas architecture, theatre, and musictheir dominant scale pulling the viewer into the psychological space of the spectacle. These paintings oscillate between celebration and desolation.
