Previews: Glenn Barr – “Invisible World” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

On October 15th, Glenn Barr will be opening a new solo show with Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York. The new body of work features paintings that look like stills from old movies created with the Detroit-based artist’s signature pulp art aesthetic. Continuing to explore some of his favorite subjects like retro space travelers and hauntingly beautiful women inspired from cult films of the 1960s and 70s, Barr has prepared compositions on paper and wood for the exhibition.  Barr further states – “Fiction. Written on the page or visualized […]

Tomorrow night (November 20th) in Detroit, Inner State Gallery will be hosting the opening of Glenn Barr’s new solo show. Entitled Hidden Persuasion, the paintings from the locally-based artist this time have less of the surreal imagery he has been known for, but focuses in more on the cinematic quality of his work. He further states – “My new work in Hidden Persuasion is a tiny bit of a departure for me. In my past work, surreal manifestations inspired by the unconscious mind came to life. […]

One of these is this intriguing mural created by Glenn Barr and Brendan Monroe. Since neither of the two artists usually work in such large scale, or in the public space, this opportunity was both a big challenge and a great experience. For this image, the artists decided to try and juxtapose their styles – since Barr went with his […]

Take […]
