As AM previewed last week through a detailed studio visit, her bigger-than-life style had us excited to see the rest of the show. Fully utilizing the grand space that Deitch Projects is renowned […]
This past weekend AM had a chance to stop by Rosson Crow’s Brooklyn studio where she graciously gave us a sneak preview of her upcoming Deitch Projects show “Bowery Boys” opening on March 4th.

You may remember seeing Rosson Crow’s luminous painting for the “Stages” exhibition that we have been covering. She recently opened up her second solo show in Paris at the Galerie Nathalie Obadia entitled “Paris, Texas.” Utilizing vibrant colors, blurs, and drips, Rosson’s recent work features opulent interiors brought back from recent history infused with playful elements like the Koons balloon sculpture (seen above). AM will definitely be keeping an eye on this promising young artist. More pics after the jump via Galerie Nathalie Obadia.
