Summary:
Known for graphic sewn paintings-which she makes by stitching together pieces of painted and raw canvas-as well as patterned tile structures which transform architecture into painting, Crowner works in a variety of media spanning the fine and applied arts. Her work from the past decade comes alive through installation shots, studio views, and source images which have inspired her and which pay homage to many lesser-known artists, designers, and performers of the 20th century. An interview with Crowner accompanies essays discussing her practice and her exhibition at MASS MoCA. With a bold and colorful design that echoes Crowner's sensibility, this book examines the artist's inclusive, yet singular vision.
