The London-based artist’s work defies easy categorization. Sometimes described as collage or mixed-media painting, Crews-Chubb’s compositions layer charcoal, ink, fabric, and, yes, paint. In his latest exhibition, he turns to textural impastoed oil, canvas strips, neon spray paint, and pumice to reflect on how the human form is replicated throughout history in everything from Italian Renaissance paintings to historical monuments. Through seven massive, mixed-media paintings and six paper studies, he reimagines iconography on his own terms.
