Another of what the artist calls his more ‘prophetic’ canvases, New World Remote Viewing dates from around the same time as Like I Need God Art. Here however, in addition to the usual furnace leftovers - in this case restricted to a half dozen small fragments of bone - the painting also contains a large number of electrical components, namely resistors, coils and capacitors salvaged from an old TV. These components make explicit Crowder’s poetic interest with energy and how to block, direct and store it in service of his compositions.
New World Remote Viewing has for many years hung in Crowder’s studio in Brixton, where it has been the constant backdrop to - and inspiration for - the work he does there.
