In this recent body of work, Crow debuts a new technique of Xerox transfers layered with painting on the canvases. Crow has long been fascinated by history and the psychology of interior spaces, and has addressed subjects as varied as French Revolutionary interiors, New York City graffiti and the films of Alfred Hitchcock. This exhibition represents Crow’s response to the paintings of Florine Stettheimer (1871-1944), a New York artist whose paintings date from the 1910s to the 1940s. Although considered a very important artist of her time, (Marcel Duchamp organized her retrospective exhibition at MOMA in 1946, and she was included in the first Whitney Biennale in 1932) Stettheimer’s works are relatively unknown today as she steadfastly refused to sell or show them in galleries. Since her death, they have often been dismissed as overly “feminine” and “eccentric” and today Stettheimer remains known mostly to a growing cult of women artists on both sides of the Atlantic who love and claim her influence. - thru May 17
-Place your feet together- bend your knees a LOT until your hands reach the mat. Tuck your tailbone in. Feel out this position first.
-With knees VERY bent- begin to twist your body to the left. Keep your toes and feet pointing forward. Only your upper body should twist.
-Place your right arm up and twist it so much that your elbow is pressed against your left outer-thigh. Now place both hands on the ground after completing this action. So- feet and knees will be pointing forward, fingertips will be pointing to the left. The base of your hand should be about 6 inches from your foot.
Now- begin to bend your elbows as if youre coming into in chaturanga. Begin to lean your left knee onto your right elbow. Once you feel STRONG and balanced, lift up the right foot- then, lift up the left foot!
Once youre up, begin to straighten your legs!! Stay strong. And eventually- both legs and arms will be up and straight. !
