Crawford Photos and Drawings - New Yorker
New Yorker
May 11, 2010
Galleries - Uptown
Ralston Crawford


Crawford's modernist photographs of the American industrial landscape share the walls with his drawings in this modest but handsome show. Like Charles Sheeler, Crawford was equally adept at photography and painting, but it's his camerawork, in both hyperrealist and abstract modes, that carries this exhibition. Although the work ranges from the nineteen-forties through the sixties, sombre pictures of grain silos, factory sheds, and building sites have the earnestness of an earlier period. But they're punctuated here and there by studies of walls and torn signs that hint at an affinity for Abstract Expressionism, which also sparks the drawings. Through May 15. (Zabriskie, 41 E. 57th St. 212-752-1223.)
