Persons Projects is proud to present Grey Crawford’s solo exhibition, Chroma Figura, which focuses upon his previously unseen color works from 1978–84.This exhibition introduces his Chroma Figura
series and focuses upon his breakthrough, highly original color works.
In seven years, the artist created over 200 works. This selection of
photographs represents an extension of Crawford’s interest in using
masked geometric basic shapes we first saw in his black and white Umbra
series. These photographic images still reflect his painterly roots
inspired by two of California’s hard-edge painters Karl Benjamin and
John McLaughlin, yet Crawford’s experimentations add a new dimension to
this ongoing dialogue. Most importantly, they now establish and give
credit to Crawford’s uniqueness.
