WILLIAM CROSBY

As an art professor for the past thirty years, William Crosby has made his life an artistic pursuit. Developing from Realist painterly influences to abstract landscapes informed by Abstract Expressionism, Crosby’s landscape-oriented paintings are gripping.

Though he spends as much time as possible immersing himself in the out of doors, the paintings are a product of his memory and imagination and are accomplished in the studio. The outdoor experience generates ideas and compositions that are realized during the actual act of painting and may change and develop as the painting progresses.

Using acrylics, he combines soft, earthy washes with bold, colorful impasto strokes to underscore a mood within an environment. Often his work can be considered as an abstract impression of the landscape. Certainly, he thinks of them as “an interpretative response to the landscape.”
