Don Crow

Interested in an object’s allusion to time and space, Don Crow projects abstract imagery onto myriad backdrops including canvas, digital print, and paper. Collaged geometric forms become compositional obstructions, revealing tension between objects removed and inserted. The shapes’ juxtapositions become a metaphor for belonging, or lack thereof. Exploring color and shape relations, Crow unearths underlying concepts of silence versus noise, environment as memory, and how varied surface application magnifies these concepts. Crow lives in Richmond, Virginia and Doha, Qatar where he works as assistant professor in design and art foundations at VCU-Q. He received his Master of Fine Arts in Painting from Virginia Commonwealth University. He has shown at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, VA; Design Box, Raleigh, NC; Seoul Hae-Tae Gallery, South Korea; Corcoran Museum, Washington, D.C., Bronx River Art Center, NY. He is a recipient of a Pollak Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts.
