"In The Shadow Of Orion was originally showcased at my Inner State Gallery exhibition titled Hidden Persuasion last year. Like all interesting stories there is intrigue with hidden agendas, and with that aesthetic in mind I approached each painting with an open ended and melodramatic narration. This piece in particular generated some dramatic narratives where the viewer is invited to seek their own scenario. The image was ripped from a 70’s British television show and I went ahead and added many accouterments. I think what gives the image it’s appeal is the monochromatic palette I used as opposed to the brightly lit and loud colors from the original reference." - Glenn Barr
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
'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.
