Glenn Barr's robots, creatures, and vixens live in a seedy yet swinging, 1960s universe, drenched in the haze of a postindustrial hangover. Working out of the burgeoning lowbrow movement in Detroit, Barr creates kinky inner sanctums adorned with disembodied cherubs, morally bankrupt babes, and sizzling femme fatales. Influenced by both pulp art and comics, Barr's work, beautifully sampled in this collection, is the visual equivalent of a David Lynch film.
ABOUT Glenn Barr:
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.
