Exhibitions 2016 - Now

I've been a visual artist for ten years. In that time I have created a lot of varied work. I'm interested in learning new techniques and styles because I enjoy the creative process. My most recent body of work is a series of digital portraits. In the past I have worked in illustration, both digital and hand generated, screen printing, leather painting, lino block and painting.

Amy Crow - 'Exquisitely Obscene' 
Showing at The Third Quarter Gallery Feb 15- Feb 28 2019

Adequately conveying one’s self has become terrifying accessible in recent times, however there is a clear disconnect between the rawness of the image and the “true-ness” of the experience. It appears as if social media applauds a certain level of raw emotion but to what degree do we curate our “feed"?

Emerging Artist Crow is interested in the division between what is shown and what remains hidden. This body of work was created digitally, using hyper-realism methods (flawless blending, expansive gradients and glossy production-worthy colour palettes) a harmony occurs between flat colour and multi-tonal planes. Presenting nonchalance as a mask to biting jealousy, or the casual self portrait as a veil to acute curatorship. 

In ‘Exquisitely Obscene’ the Artist offers an unfiltered view into the way her subjects appear versus how they truly feel, and as the viewer we’re invited to navigate the cunningly sharp edge between the two.

SECOND SKIN // SOLO SHOW 2017

This is a collection of hand painted jackets and supporting artwork that I created for my solo exhibition at Maverick on the Gold Coast. The premise of this body of work was about how we use clothing to either accentuate or hide our personalities.
