colour, shape, form…

Cromer developed his adult imagination through text rather than image, becoming a librarian and receiving a master’s degree in creative writing. In 1998, feeling frustration with his library job, he began to work with oil pastels while watching television after work. His computer-paper doodles developed into more substantial drawings and, eventually, he would draw until 2 a.m. every night, despite having to leave for work at 7 a.m. From the start, Cromer saw his art as counter to library work. He notes that while librarians have to provide answers, his art shows ambiguity.

    These pieces are amongst the most beautiful work I’ve ever seen. Such vivid use of colour; such plentiful construction of shapes; such ecstatic impact on the spectator.
