Cromarty's art is complicated and succeeds where many "multi-dimensional" pieces do not. How? That is a question best left to the eyes of the viewers but there is one clear reason; these pieces are not all gimmick. The three dimensions are integral. These are not paintings with a baby doll glued to them.
Beyond the work, Cromarty held a BFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and an MFA from UCLA. Her work was widely exhibited and acclaimed. Tragically, she passed away at the aged of 37. Her work, of course, lives on and deserves an audience. Collectors and art aficionados should know her work. LA Weekly wrote an obituary that captures the tragedy.
