Trinon Crouch, born in 1951, and native of the Southwest, is a painter

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,
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."
