Opening reception on December 15, 2011 from 6-9 p.m. at The Old Stone House

Hugh Crawford’s photographic tangles of rose bushes, ocean waves, the banks of the Gowanus Canal, architecture, and trees reify the tension between detail closely observed and panoramic vista intrinsic to the act of seeing. Created in the Autumn of 2011, the work addresses the entwinement of growth, death, and rebirth.

Synthesized from multiple exposures reassembled in jagged composition, the work is printed in sections on photographic canvas, some as large as eight feet.

Hugh Crawford studied photography and received a BA from Bard College, and an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts. His work has appeared in Rolling Stone, New York Magazine, Tattler, and Newsweek. His fine art work has been exhibited in numerous galleries in NYC and San Francisco. A recipient of a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation, he was also an artist-in-residence at ArtPark in Buffalo, NY. He is currently at work on a book about Polaroid photographer Jamie Livingston. His photos can be seen daily on the No Words Daily Pix feature of Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn.
