A Little About Us

Experimenting with a practice he calls "Sledgehammer Painting" (Slam Painting). He threw away his delicate horsetail brush, "cut the shit" so to speak... join him on his journey. Working with the Sledgehammer is a large and clumsy brush; opposite of the approach he studied as a child; spending hours learning the gentle stroke a horsetail brush delivers on rice paper. "This new found paintbrush signals my revolt against the delicate and gentle, embracing the awkward and clumsy; a ballerina with a concrete leg." Chris Crewe | 2019

    Artist's State of Emergency

    March 10 2020There are so few things to write about in the life of Chris Crewe this last month... some orders from Saatchi happened, the plague happened, enough said, everyone has been affected by this global crisis.I found myself stealing a few tubes of fluorescent Liquitex from Michaels, I am like a drug addict for art, I decided I need to take a break.  Despite hard times I have been gifted a Segway by a dear friend to help keep me traveling, and keep me moving freely around the city, I...

    Just When You Thought it's Over... Spring!Boy this has been a long winter, I get relief from talking like it is over already I tell myself I smell spring in the air when I go outside.  My long dark nights spent curled up on the sofa with stomach pain, worrying myself to death about this situation or that one.Paperwork is coming at me left and right claiming noise violations, harassment, paint on the hallway carpet, and worse of all legal action.  I let it all roll off my back, I...

    Big Help from a Stranger | I'm Somewhere Over the Rainbow Now | Survived the Holiday SeasonThe things us artists go through, the people we meet, the realness of being free for the day to be inspired and continue being generally happy is an incredible leap of faith.  Knowing I will not end up on an episode of Hoarders miserable and cursing out my loved ones one day, art takes care of me, I believe in myself.I took a back alley route home and found a flawless full piece of plywood that was...

    Found Objects, New Abstract, Clothing Line Coming to an End... Season in Review

    Hammer Piercing Architecture Causing it to Leak PigmentWhile cleaning my studio this week I came across many forgotten pieces of work that were undocumented and not categorized, some aren't exactly intentional art... more like the product of daydreaming.  I often doodle with latex paint, putting it in Pepsi bottles and squirting it all over an object or carving, making a shell over a piece of architecture and a piece of wood forever binding them together.  Carving...

    Catching the Negative Impact of the MarkThe Broken Tile that Changed My Life | 26''x14'' | 2019Recently I slammed down my 8lbs sledgehammer as I usually do when starting a new work.  This time I forgot what I had stored underneath of it and ended up breaking a large granite tile.Hot Pink Broken Slab| 9''x12'' | 2019 The shape of the  break astonished me it was so beautiful; almost divine in nature.  I became fascinated by it's strange resemblance to my  beloved...

    Force Time Relation Impulse...

    I decided to do a little reading into the physics of a collision and the forces involved.  I came away with a stellar vocabulary to describe my work, I decided to write up a short piece to show off its amazingness!!!Through a collision, I change the paints momentum from zero to some value given by its mass times its velocity; this causes an elastic expanse of paint like sunbeams which rise upward and outward from the center.      The first markEventually, its...
