"This piece is one of the few times I’ve given a figure extra arms. They come in handy when working machinery and flying contraptions. The original sold at my 2013 Spring solo exhibition at the Inner State gallery. The Detroit grand opening of the gallery last May was met with great success. It’s a beautiful space. The show was titled ROOMS where I was able to develop a cross section of the work I do. Part of the show consisted of images illuminating persons and places around the city ( based on fact and fiction ). The other half of the show I wanted to take people outside the city and into the realm of the fantastic and the “otherworldly” settings that patrons know me for: the ROOMS of my brain. This piece was painted in 2013 using acrylic on board. I pulled the idea from a drawing in my sketchbook. I remember it came together fairly fluidly, kind of a stream of consciousness product, as I tend to work that way." - Glenn Barr

This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Glenn Barr and 1xRUN.

Glenn Barr's surreal creatures, specters and tragic characters live in a seedy universe, drenched in the grit and haze of a post-apocalyptic urban dreamscape. His Detroit work has been labeled Pop Surrealism, Pop Pluralism, Lowbrow, Regional, Outsider, Ashcan or as he coins the phrase “B Cultural-ism”. Barr finds inspiration in the city streets as well as from pop and counter cultures that infuse a familiarity in his many parallel realities. With a nod to old master painting, pulp art, and cartooning, Barr's paintings are mesmerizing in their narrative complexities and technical depth.
