Biography

Lewis J. Crawford is a fourth generation Arizona native and second generation Arizona artist, but currently lives in Salt Lake City, UT.  He is an Assistant Professor (Lecturer) for the University of Utah and Adjunct Instructor at Westminster College.  In 2009, he earned a MFA in photography from the University of Utah and in 2005, a BFA in photography from Arizona State University, graduating summa cum laude.  He has participated in several solo and two person exhibitions, most notably at Modified Arts in Phoenix, AZ.  He has shown internationally and been part of numerous national group shows.  He was a Purchase Award recipient for the juried 26th Annual McNeese Works on Paper Exhibition.  His work explores how digital technology, antiquated photographic processes and print making can create what he defines as Marktitious Imagery –a semiotic examination into the reassignment of marks found in a human-made landscape.
