About Jonathan Crow

I use a muted palette to create oil paintings that recall the vibrancy and optimism of America during the Cold War reframed to reflect the anxiety and uncertainty of this current era. I draw inspiration from vintage snapshots culled from the 1950s through to the 1980s and use them in a way that not only creates compositional tension between positive and negative space but also narrative tension. I’m drawn to images that seem to be small parts of a larger narrative;  images that raise more questions than they resolve. My paintings are fragments mid-20th century suburban life where disaster seems to lurk just beyond the frame.
