Dark Dreams, is a comprehensive 12 year survey of

Hugo Crosthwaite's complex drawings, opening on March 5th at 

Noel-Baza Fine Art, in Little Italy.

This exhibit is in conjuction with the SDMA's exhibition of Hugo

Crosthwaite's works entitled Brutal Beauty, continuing through mid July 2010.

Crosthwaite’s solo and collective exhibitions have traveled extensively

in the United States and Mexico. His work was selected by  Carter Foster

(Curator of Drawings at New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art) for

inclusion in the 22nd International Juried Show at the Visual Arts Center

of New Jersey. His recent 2009 solo exhibition at Pierogi Gallery in New

York and his monumental drawing at Boffo Projects were described by the

Village Voice as "Caravaggio-like drama and edging toward surrealism, the

wondrous graphite-and charcoal scenes of urban existence-by a superb

draftsman-are like illustrations for a latter day Dante."
