Glenn Barr "Glitterland"
In his debut exhibition with KP Projects/MKG Glenn Barr’s narrative backdrops feature women embroiled in the subtle complexities of everyday life. Inspired by cult films of the 1960s and 70s, the hauntingly beautiful figures in Glitterland exude the sensuality and tension found in pulp art or film noir - an uncertain reality that extends beyond the frame. The exhibition is not only a visual paradox of the cheap glitter of Hollywood glamour, but a glimpse into the private spaces of communication embodied by anonymous heroines whispering into telephones of a by-gone era. Barr began his artistic career after graduating from Detroit'’s College for Creative Studies. For the past two decades he has contributed to numerous graphic novels, animated cartoons, and rock poster art. He has exhibited extensively both in the U.S. and abroad.
