Miles McEnery Gallery is pleased to announce representation of Rosson Crow. Her inaugural solo exhibition with the gallery will open in May 2024.
Los Angeles-based painter Rosson Crow is situated in the school of contemporary West Coast painting. Rendered in oil, acrylic, and photo transfer, her distinctly Californian compositions are hyper saturated in both palette and Crow’s own lexicon of cultural and historical references. Immersive in scale, her works approach canonical history painting with a contemporary wit. Rococo-era parlours ornamented with marble busts and crystal chandeliers turn catastrophic by vegetal overgrowth and flooded floors. Ethereal landscapes are littered with bitten, fleshy fruit, empty soda cans, and overturned antiquities plastered with bumper stickers. Reminders of reality interrupt otherwise utopian scenes, casting a light on today’s consumerist excess.
Rosson Crow (b. 1982 in Dallas, TX) received her Master of Fine Arts from Yale University and her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts, New York.
