Los Angeles-based artist Rosson Crow densely layers her surfaces with acrylic, spray paint, xeroxed photo-transfers, oil, and enamel juxtaposing images and icons from various eras. Her subjects are often presented as discarded artifacts strewn through densely populated interiors or acid-washed landscapes, exploring an interest in how historic events are viewed differently over time. To decipher Crow’s works means to find the dichotomies within her compositions – man and nature, past and present – and ponder the symbiotic relationships between them.
Rosson Crow was born in 1982 in Dallas, Texas. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in 2004 and a Master of Fine Arts from Yale University in 2006. Crow lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, USA.
Crow’s solo gallery exhibitions include Honor Fraser Gallery in Los Angeles, Galerie Nathalie Obadia in Paris, Deitch Projects NYC, White Cube in London, and the Hole in NYC.
