Rosson Crow at Artissima 19

Crow has created four new paintings especially for this presentation. As in her exhibition with the Gallery earlier this year, she explores the history of the American South through hallucinatory depictions of its spaces. These atmospheric works envelop the viewer in indeterminate places that combine architectural fantasy with historical reimaginings.

Rosson Crow at Honor Fraser
By Yasmine Mohseni
April 23, 2012

For "Ballyhoo Hullabaloo Haboob", her second solo show at the gallery, the artist takes a decisive step away from
the exuberant and colorful historical interiors for which she is known. The ten large works on view capture a
somber and reflective mood. By focusing on mid 20th-century American patriotism, bravado, social upheaval and economic turmoil, Crow draws from the past to comment on the present.

Los Angeles: Rosson Crow 'Ballyhoo Hullbaloo Haboob' at Honor Fraser through March 31
By Megan Hoetger

In her second solo exhibition with Honor Fraser Gallery, Los Angeles-based artist Rosson Crow explores memory, history, and the visual cues of U.S. national identity in a series of largescale works on canvas. Playing on terms that suggest a raucous commotion, as well as a classic American boosterism, Ballyhoo Hullabaloo Haboob depicts moments of tragedy and triumph in the long 20th century.

Art Review: Rosson Crow at Honor Fraser
By Holly Myers

The play of light through these hazy compositions has a resonance not unlike that of early cinema, yielding a similar quality of enchantment. And in lessening the distraction of specific historical and architectural references — those that remain are largely lodged in the titles ("Lindbergh for President," "April 9, 1968") — she seems to have opened up space for the emergence of a more authentic pictorial language, one that builds on her feel for the handling of paint rather than any declarative compulsion.

Rosson Crow's Abstracted American Moments
to Open at Honor Fraser
By Alanna Martinez

Texas native and Yale graduate, Rosson Crow, has gained rightful prestige following a trail of graffiti infused recent works celebrated by critics and art lovers alike. She started out with a bang in 2003 when she was included in legendary New York art stronghold, Deitch Projects's group show "K48 Klubhouse." She's had solo shows at Deitch, the Lower East Side's Canada, London's White Cube, and the Contemporary Arts Center of Cincinnati, among others.

Beyond the White Cube: Rosson Crow in Black and White
By Yasmine Mohseni

I stopped by Rosson Crow's studio a few weeks ago as she put the finishing touches on a new series of paintings for her upcoming solo show at Honor Fraser. Born in Texas, Rosson got her MFA from Yale and did a residency at Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris before moving to L.A. in 2006. Her paintings, which often pull from historical source material, have an edgy vibe that combines punk rock irreverence with rock star decadence.

Rosson Crow: Myth of the American Motorcycle

In Myth of the American Motorcycle, Crow contends with a specific history, the environments and sites encountered in her paintings are the same as those documented and embellished through the 50s, 60s, and 70s in both art and folklore, at once writ large on the American page and screen in Jack Kerouac's On the Road, 1951 and Dennis Hopper's Easy Rider, 1969 while being presented with clear eyes and in a straightforward manner in the photographs of Ed Ruscha and Stephen Shore.
There will be an opening party, free and open to the public, at the museum on Friday, November 5 at 8pm. On Saturday, November 6 at 2pm the museum will host an artist talk with Rosson Crow.


For this project, an interdisciplinary mix of today's top creative icons have each interpreted a Tarot card using their own iconography. Each artist has been matched with a Tarot card based on archetypal themes that their work reference. For example, Tracey Emin is matched with the Empress card as it is the most sensual of the deck, Terence Koh is contributing The Lovers card for his work about lovers and his zines, Will Cotton has taken on the Four of Coins as it speaks about gluttony, Kalup Linzy was matched with the Tower because of the impending drama found in his soap opera works, etc.

The exhibition will be on view during the month of November 2010 at the National Arts Club.

The private reception and dinner on November 5th, for the exhibition's opening reception will have the participating artists in attendance, as well as specially invited guests for the occasion. The night will feature Tarot Reading Art Performances, and the food will be inspired by ritualistic and Medieval cuisine.
