Meet the Artist
Born in southern Colorado, Wilson Crawford has been painting for the last 50 years of his life. It is only within the last three years, since his semi-retirement, that he has been able to concentrate on painting. He paints primarily in oils; however, Wilson still enjoys drawing in graphite of which he draws bone forms, particularly skulls. Most of Wilson’s oil paintings are landscapes. For many years Wilson made kinetic mobiles and flat plate steel sculptures. Last year he begun sculpting wax figures which he finds most interesting.
Wilson considers himself lucky to have lived in some of the most beautiful places in the west, Cody, Wyoming; Taos, New Mexico and Telluride, Colorado to name a few. Observation and interaction with the landscapes of the west form the core experience of his life. Painting from memory not a from a photo, Wilson captures the essence of a place but not a literal reproduction.
