Rosson Crow is a bright, brash, bold young painter from L.A. via Dallas, Texas. Her super-scale history paintings superimpose theatrical tableau from suggestively paired periods: whether the garden of Versailles, a Vegas Casino, a Jason Rhodes neon installation, a honky tonk bar, an equestrian dressage field or Abraham Lincolnís funeral procession, her clever parings have a hallucinatory relationship to their sources and deal in design and power. Rendered in glowing layers of oil paints and washes, her theatrical confabulations collapse centuries and synthesize styles to reveal the multiply haunted nature of interior space and the affinities that align across time. Though critically sophisticated, Rosson will tell you her paintings are also BIG and FUN, two things she is not embarrassed to celebrate.
