7 Feb - 11 Apr 2020

Russell Crotty is fascinating to talk to—an accomplished visual artist, his rhetoric reads equal parts historian, amateur astronomer, numbers-challenged astrophysicist, and passionate outdoor recreationist.

Crotty’s new body of work references early art movements such as Surrealism, Finish Fetish from the 1960s, process experimentation from the 1970s, Modernism and retro Sci-Fi. His process begins with works on paper, drawn with sticks dipped in ink (with a nod to Matisse), then overlaid with 3-dimensional plastic, fiberglass and tinted bio-resin, which he started experimenting with about six years ago.
