is striking about Jasana Crowie is that she is well familiar with
the competitive world of commercial art and yet, in the paintings
for this exhibition she concentrates in nature: flowers and parks.
The link between these two seemingly opposing activities and inspirations,
however, is the iconic quality of her paintings. Objects, flowers
are not just realistic, they acquire a surreal quality by their
brightness, they become objects to be cherished.
