Dallas: Rosson Crow

I've been watching artist Rosson Crow's career for a few years now and every time I see something written about her or see one of her new paintings my heart kind of skips a beat. 
 I like everything about her work - the big, messy brashness of it all, the crazy scale, the Keith Haring quality. I'm so drawn to it. 
 29 year-old Crow, who was born and raised in Dallas, did undergrad at NYU and got her MFA from Yale, has become a bit of an art world superstar and you can see her in the December issue of Elle.
 Click here to read a great artnet interview with her where she talks about her work and growing up in Texas. 
 "I want the viewer to be overwhelmed. I want the space to feel like it is caving in on the viewer and that they are forcibly entering the world of my paintings. I want there to be a feeling of overpowering decadence to the work, that is almost too much to take. I don't want them to be subtle." - Rosson Crow
Crow is scheduled to have a solo exhibit next spring (feb 25-mar 31) at Honor Fraser in LA and that, my friends, is reason enough for me to hop on a plane.
