  • Recent Press
    1. FLORAL PATTERNS ~ AN ESSAY ABOUT FLOWERS AND ART (WITH A BLOOMING ADDENDUM.) by Andrew Berardini, Mousse Magazine (2016) “Without flowers, the reptiles, which had gotten along fine in a leafy, fruitless world, would probably still rule. Without flowers, we would not be.” — Michael Pollan, The Botany of Desire (2001)
    2. "Back to nature: How our latest midcentury modern design obsession reflects our age of environmental anxiety" by Kate Losse, Curbed.com (2016) "The connections between the resurgence of plants and our moment of environmental reckoning are palpable enough that they have become a subject for younger artists. Artist Zoe Crosher created a piece for the Los Angeles Nomadic Division in 2015 that depicts, in a series of billboards along the I-10 from Palm Springs to Los Angeles, a profusion of tropical foliage in various stages of health and decay."
    3. Art Viewer - Zoe Crosher at Mayeur Projects (2016) Mayeur Projects is pleased to present The New LA-LIKE, an exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist Zoe Crosher.
    4. Zoe Crosher: The New LA-LIKE by Chelsea Withers, The Magazine (2016) “But instead of lurid tabloid photos, Crosher is channeling cool Ed Ruscha. Her photographs catalogue places simply and straightforwardly; you wouldn’t even know what you were looking at if it weren’t for Crosher’s titles, which function like commemorative plaques.” - Chelsea Withers, The Magazine
    5. “Madames Electrics” at The Pit on Contemporary Art Daily (2016) "Dear Madames, Madames Electrics is a group exhibition and a book that came together through convoluted collusion, a polluted process of one thing leading to another. A show of lamps became a show of figures, and vice versa. Close and farflung friends came together with strangers, old art and new objects, electric and nonelectric, etc. In the end, light was shed on some hands and not others, some rights and some lefts. Something and some things were lost along the way, but what comes together is still something, it’s something else: Madames Electrics."
    6. Madames Electric at The Pit for Carla l.a. | Snap Reviews by Aaron Horst, July 16, 2016 (2016) "The lighting, a low, somewhat suburban glow provided in pieces by Julian Hoeber, Jamie Isenstein, and Interior Theater, adds an incantatory layer to Lutker and Adriana Lara’s Hands Modeling Air series as well as Zoe Crosher’s mid-’90s C-prints, the latter stewing together the hard-to-resist aesthetics of foregrounded color printing and hazily imaged chunks of the body."
