Gregory Crewdson 7. Gregory Crewdon People in Crewdson's work avoid eye contact, but seethe misery, jealousy, anger or plain old confoundedness. They stand in the rain transfixed, or wander aimlessly or get up to no good in the woods at night. They have horrible times at home and in hotel rooms. You don't need a second glimpse to tell that this is small-town America, whose dark side has become a cinematic and literary cliche. One wonders, though, if there is any other side but dark to the American psyche. It isn't surprising that everyone in Crewdson's images is somehow lost, bereft, misplaced, tormented. We are already so familiar with this territory that one can't even look at an old man crossing the street to the Oasis liquor store without wondering what terrible troubles he's going to drown in a quart of Jim Beam; or if that woman we glimpse through the lighted door of the Thrifty Bundle laundry is planning her seventh divorce, or just a murder.
