THE MATERIALS

OIL PAINT

Angie uses oil paint to create her work, a traditional method in painting first used in Asia as early as the 7th century AD.

palladium leaf

A perfect non-tarnishing metal leaf, Angie employs palladium to the edges of her works. Palladium leaf is a pure alloy and is a Silver colored metal.

WOOD PANEL

Finely sanded, wooden panels deliver a consistently strong, sturdy archival support for the painting medium.

THE ARTIST

Angie Crabtree is an artist and designer whose paintings offer a rigorous study of light and optics, approaching the subject matter as portraiture of modern day relics for a world that loves beautiful trophies. Her work uses precious gemstones as a means to unpack the psychology and allure of luxury culture. Using oil paint, she creates magnified portraits of real gemstones. Her most well-known commissions include “The Pink Promise” diamond and Chopard’s massive 342 carat “Queen of Kalahari” diamond. Angie painted her first diamond — at 5 feet tall — in 2012 for her exhibition, “Living the Dream.” Inspired by the success of her first big exhibition and the abstract patterns, Angie continues to dig deeper into our perception of excess, wealth and luxury. Growing up in Northern California, Crabtree found crystals and minerals on walks with her gold mining grandfather, quickly learning about what society agrees are some of the world’s most valuable objects.
