Friday, December 10th was the long awaited opening reception for "Crooked Comfort" the U.S. debut exhibition from artist Craww, who plies his trade from the fair city of Sheffield, England.
   Drawing inspiration from daydreams, music, comics, nature and gin, Craww creates dreamlike portraits rendered with a dynamic mix of elegance, balance and disciplined chaos. His work conveys a fascination with ambiguity: pretty things in dark places, nasty surprises masquerading in beauty, hidden stories and happy accidents.
The series of new works featured in the “Crooked Comfort” is a story without an end - a stream of consciousness ramble through the woods, populated with skulls, crows and pensive girls with conspicuous hands, individually emanating a melancholy force of beauty.

“Crooked Comfort” also showcases new works by:
Andy Haynes, Emma Overman, Jasmine Worth, Jennifer Springman, Marie Barr, Michael Page, Mike Maxwell, Paul Chatem, Roland Tamayo & Tatiana Suarez
Los Angeles based artist CODAK 
bestowed us with a dynamic live painting session
