While his images may include railroad crossings, trucks, trees and buildings, the real subjects of Crooks’ oil paintings are the opacity of light and the transparency of shadow. Born and raised in San Diego, and currently working in Imperial Beach, Crooks’ outdoor “snapshots” bring a new freshness and local appeal to the landscape genre. Working in the spirit of realism with romantic bent, Crooks’ luminous landscapes function as interpretive windows of daily life. Marking the first museum exhibition of his work, The Point of View features twenty-three paintings created over the last 25 years that  emphasize cityscapes, nostalgic urban scenery and expansive landscapes based on photographs taken throughout the West Coast.
