In “The Happiest People on Earth,” her current show at Honor Fraser, Rosson Crow satirizes the modern-day Wild West. Her large, glossy and intentionally messy canvases depict cacti and desert plants on sandy ground. Sometimes neon green and hot pink, the paintings look washed out, like photographs left in the sun for too long. Pages from the National Enquirer, sarcastic signage and catchy, questionable bumper stickers appear throughout, caught on cactus arms or plastered to decorated planters. “Smile, you’re in shooting range,” says one sign. “God Votes Republican,” reads a sticker plastered on a fence in a painting Crow titled Enduring Displays of American Exceptionalism.
