Her works directly respond to the surrounding environment and uses everyday experiences from the artist as a starting point. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context. By exploring the concept of landscape in a nostalgic way, she investigates the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us. Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination.
Her works establish a link between the landscape's reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence. By emphasising aesthetics, she tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way, likes to involve the viewer in a way that is sometimes physical and believes in the idea of function following form in a work.
Her works doesn't reference recognisable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. Contemporary Artist Carmel McCrow currently lives and works in Canberra.
Although I have painted figurative and animal subjects, I find I am repeatedly drawn to the environment. I have been lucky enough to have travelled over a large area of Australia, and I find it a visual feast of formation and colour, constantly supply me with the source of the emotive power of nature, and therefore inspiration.
