Now representing Sue Crawford

Pazo Fine Art is pleased to announce the representation of Sue Crawford. To launch the relationship, the gallery will exhibit her work in a joint presentation with Elise Ferguson, and Richard Tinkler in the fall of 2023. Crawford's work was included in the group exhibition, Soft Power, presented at the gallery this past summer. 

Drawing influence from the Minimalist and Light and Space movements early on, Sue Crawford’s paintings embody an ethereal space in which to give form to pattern and cause to texture. Her work expresses and examines interconnection by means of layered pathways of line, color, and tone. With references such as geological strata, topographical maps, as well as gathered knowledge from regular forays in the woods, she creates personal terrains made of synergistic combinations of adjacent lines. Crawford’s artwork asserts the painted line as an interior experience, each layer serving as a space for exploration and constant change. 

Sue Crawford was born in 1976 in Santa Barbara, California, and grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Painting from Massachusetts College of Art in 1998 and lived between the US east and west coasts for years before moving to Baltimore in 2007, where she was introduced to the fields of painting restoration and conservation, processes that have informed her current art practice in technique, momentum, and material. Recent exhibitions include a solo show, Lines are Feelings Too, at the Institute of Contemporary Art (Baltimore, MD), and group shows at Pazo Fine Art (Kensington, MD), Towson University (Towson, MD), Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (Milwaukee, Wisconsin), and Institute of Contemporary Art (Baltimore, MD), Crawford is a two-time Sondheim Semifinalist.
