For those who missed the Joe Sorren (featured) exhibition which just closed at AFA in New York, here are some photos you can peruse from when we stopped by last month. Returning to the gallery that showed him in NYC a year ago (covered), the gifted painter presented twelve new oil paintings collectively entitled Knock Three Times. Seeing Sorren’s expressive paintings in person certainly reminds one of how emotive the gestures of his characters are and how his delicate brushstrokes can create such fantastic dream-like imagery.

Roq La Rue changed it up for this month’s opening. The works on display are from the personal collection of the Baxter family, who are selling some of their collection to move overseas.

Joe Sorren (featured) recently opened a great show at New York’s Jonathan LeVine Gallery. Entitled Everything’s Alright Sweetie, Please Get Some Sleep, this exhibition delivered what we come to expect from the artist. From his thoughtful impressionist inspired brushstrokes to dreamy soft textures & lighting, Joe touches the viewers in a way few artists we’ve seen could. The themes this series harnesses are the fear and concerns of vulnerability, but also the contrasting strength that comes with courage. This wonderful show is up until December 29th, […]
For nearly two decades, the name Joe Sorren has been synonymous with an ability to create a story of endless interpretation within his works. If you have been following the surrealism painters of the modern age, then you certainly know the name and the work. But who is Joe Sorren? The man behind the art has remained somewhat of an enigma. He is seclusive perhaps borderline reclusive, especially in regards to his sanctuary of creation. Sorren firmly believes his art should speak without having to speak […]
