Rosson Crow

596a_1228182474596b_1228182474Using a similarly garish color palette to Toulouse-Lautrec, Rosson Crow creates vibrantly haunting paintings of living spaces.
Luminosity plays a key role in the dramatic mood of these woks. Crow combines a graffiti style with fluorescent lighting, attention to patterns and prints, and an abstract expressionism dripping brush. Many of these paintings reference real architectural buildings and homes, reinterpreted through the lens of a contemporary street cabaret. These rooms are empty, and instead of using people, Crow uses flowing colors to create movement and to give the illusion of life. Despite the wild color and brush strokes, the images have an inherent coldness to them that is both uninviting and eerie.
