the aching charm of rosson crow

Sometimes I see art and I can't stop thinking about it. I want to see it. That is how I feel when I look at the work of Texas-born artist Rosson Crow. Her works are huge, lush historical interiors devoid of people - haunting and completely captivating.

"Those places we no longer see, perhaps will never see again but still remember, have acquired an aching charm; they return to us with the melancholy of ghosts." - Victor Hugo, Les Miserables

The Huffington Post uses the above quote to describe the feeling created by the work of artist Rosson Crow.

Rosson Crow, "Five Minutes Late and Two Bucks Short at the Cha Cha", 2007, Oil, enamel, spray paint, and acrylic on canvas, 90 x 132 inches

She should show at the De Young in San Francisco. I am sure of it. 100%.
