The selected Crow’s pieces for the exhibition depict recognizable historical interior spaces with a sense of eeriness.  The darkness is the keynote of her paintings: some features of her paintings are dominating black and subdued color palette and expressionist painting techniques.  Such twist to the historic interiors creates chaos and theatrical grandeur.
