Curator's Eye

Oscar Crabb creates rich and vibrant textile works that explore the environmental and political impacts of the current climate crisis. Utilizing recycled materials and natural dyes, Crabb takes on a holistic sustainability within the creation process, understanding the complexities of his materials and how they work with one another. Often displaying these works alongside cutting-edge scientific research, Crabb – although acknowledging his work alone is not the answer – situates his practice as an agent of change within enviro-political discourse.

I’ve always loved how crows, rooks, jackdaws etc. always come to roost in the evening - so when I wanted to do a piece that highlighted the importance of communal values, coming together, and resting, it was obvious to me that I wanted to depict this scene. It’s important that we remember the values of what a roost represents - resting, coming together.
