Russell Crotty is renowned for his intricate representations of night skies on hanging spheres. In his 6th solo exhibition at Hosfelt Gallery, he adds quintessentially Western, extremely exaggerated horizontal landscapes beneath stellar expanses. With these drawings, Crotty takes viewers to the edge of the known world, then asks them to imagine what lies beyond.

Crotty’s 2D and 3D drawings are based on his own astronomical observations and field expeditions. Anecdotal text and journalistic notations follow the contours of land and sky formations, transporting the viewer directly into the experience, through canyons at dusk, over shadowy boulders, and up into the cosmos.
