Takapuna

Takapuna is one of those works that photos cannot due it justice. It is simply breathtaking. A gorgeous example of Crowell's prowess in depicting a distillation of nature: it's surfaces, colors and atmosphere, on to panel. This oil and cold wax piece is on cradled panel with sanded edges. Ready to hang. Oil and cold wax on cradled panel, 24" x 36" x 2", 2016

"Crowell's works are abstracted from nature: they are personal responses to the visual forms, colors and atmospheres that have surrounded her in a variety of locations. There are vestiges of representation in Rebecca Crowell's work, but it is a type of representation that has been refined and re-constituted through her artistic sensibility and through her emotions." —John Seed, Huffington Post

Since earning her MFA in painting from Arizona State University in 1985, Rebecca Crowell has led a life focused on painting. When she is not traveling for teaching or for artist residencies (in such places as the Catalonia region of Spain, northern Sweden, and coastal areas of Ireland) she works almost daily in her studio in rural western Wisconsin. She draws significant influence from these residencies and travels, as well as from her surroundings at home.

Rebecca Crowell is known for her innovative painting techniques involving cold wax medium and mixed media, and is represented by a number of fine art galleries in various locations including Dublin, Ireland; Chicago, Illinois; Telluride, Colorado; Atlanta, Georgia; Vallejo, California; Door County, Wisconsin; Tucson, Arizona; and Columbia, Missouri. Her representation with Gormleys Fine Art in Dublin has recently led to international exposure, including several European art fairs.
