Sydney Croskery is an artist born and living in Los Angeles, making paintings that are both materially and conceptually rigorous. With a process involving detailed action painting coinciding with writings, Croskery uses abstraction as means to make sense of our political, emotional, overwhelming and hilarious aspects of life. Title and essay for the paintings connect the personal to the societal to our moment in time, creating a visual record for the complexity of contemporary life. Using art as a bridge, Croskery seeks to make objects of beauty that that connect the heart with the mind.
Croskery has presented solo shows at Craig Krull Gallery, boxoProjects, and Citrus College Art Gallery. She has participated in group shows at Monte Vista Projects, Baik Art, Central Park Gallery, Charlie James Gallery, The Fellows of Contemporary Art, Durden and Ray, Angles Gallery, The Torrance Art Museum, The Indianapolis Museum of Art, and The Riverside Museum. She has presented performance pieces at the Getty Museum, Jack Tilton Gallery, the Deitch Art Parade, and Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions.
