Rosson Crow's characteristically large-scale, immersive and richly hued work is often based on historic references, both personal and collective in nature. Often including Modernist architectural triumphs, or places with mythic backstories, Crow’s diverse influences range from Los Angeles’s Koenig House to Fort Worth’s White Elephant Saloon. The artist’s canvases also frequently evoke the romance and nostalgia of a bygone era by pairing the masculine environments of rodeos, saloons, and trophy rooms with a lush, expressionistic style that often layers mediums such as acrylic, spray paint, oil and enamel.
