On November 1st 2010, 1xRUN started off as a simple concept - release one art print every Monday, set a limit on the edition and only have that print available for 1 week. We’ve come quite a ways since 1xRUN began as a side project run out of the back room of our old gallery. This RUN marks our 3 - year anniversary and celebrates our 600th RUN!
"This was a chance to do yet another Christ related piece. I had done a few Jesus themed pieces in the past placing him different situations … perhaps considered irreverent but it really depends on how you look at it. So they’ve been met with, and not surprisingly, mixed reviews. But in the end they had become wildly iconic and popular in my career." - Glenn Barr
This RUN come signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Glenn Barr and 1xRUN.
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.
