Trinon Crouch

Biography from Art Exchange Gallery

Trinon Crouch, born in 1951, and native of the Southwest, is a painter with over thirty years of art experience.  He received his first art award in 1968 when one of his oil paintings was selected to show in the World Hemisfair in San Antonio, Texas.  Crouch has continued his search for his own personal expression since that time.

Graduating from the University of Texas at El Paso in 1974 with a Bachelor of Arts degree, Crouch left El Paso for Jackson, Wyoming, where he lived and worked for five years.  The power and awe of the Grand Teton mountains and the Snake River increased his interest in painting landscapes.  For five years he hiked, sketched and painted In Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, and Colorado.

Returning to El Paso in 1980 to assume a teaching position at El Paso Community College, Crouch taught commercial illustration and art history, and worked as a fashion illustrator.  During this period he continued to paint the desert, west Texas plains and the Gila wilderness of southern New Mexico.  While in Texas, Crouch had several one-man shows.

In 1983, attracted by the mountains and high desert, he moved to Santa Fe to commit himself fully to a career as a painter.  Crouch lived in Santa Fe for twelve years before he met and married his wife Sherie Hartle.  They now have a son, Dylan.

Expressing the sensations of changing light, air, and seasons are important features in his paintings.  Many of his works are done on location, capturing the atmospheric changes with the immediacy of his brushstroke.  He states, "I am a hunter of light and weather conditions.  I love paintings that express mood.  Often a sense of mood or atmosphere in a scene is created by a condition of weather or changing light."

Jeff Tabor, the owner of Art Exchange Gallery, states: "Trinon has a wonderful sense of color and mood in his paintings.  His full-palette color schemes are very appealing to most everyone.  He has received various awards.  It is an added bonus that he is a very nice guy as well as a successful professional artist."
