ALEXANDRIA MCCROSKY swoon, 2014digital painting, inkjet on paper
When first approaching the digital paintings of Alexandria McCrosky, one is immediately confronted with a serene complexity and a refined sense of color. The palette of swoon is a study and meditation on complementary hues blended with a frenetic rhythm. Along the edges of the work, shattered frames encase a chaotic scene of hectic lines and jagged shapes. The softness found in moments of simulated airbrush marks is interrupted with a kind of geometry that can only result from a process of cut-and-paste. As a whole, the digital painting makes up a flat and dense surface; one that readily reminds us of the tricks the screen can play on our eyes. (Text by Paddles ON! curator Lindsay Howard)
