DESCRIPTION

*Special Giveaways sponsored by Blik*

C.A.V.E Gallery is pleased to present the debut U.S exhibition from self-taught artist Craww, who plies his trade from the fair city of Sheffield, England.

Drawing inspiration from daydreams, music, comics, nature and gin, Craww creates dreamlike portraits rendered with a dynamic mix of elegance, balance and disciplined chaos. His work conveys a fascination with ambiguity: pretty things in dark places, nasty surprises masquerading in beauty, hidden stories and happy accidents.

 

The series of new works featured in the "Crooked Comfort" is a story without an end - a stream of consciousness ramble through the woods, populated with skulls, crows and pensive girls with conspicuous hands, individually emanating a melancholy force of beauty.
