“Faces” Exhibition by Glenn Barr

Fresh off the release of his new book “FACES” of the same name, Glenn Barr joined artist Lyle Motley for an exhibition at La Luz de Jesus gallery in Los Angeles earlier this month. Glenn signed books in the early evening, followed by a reception attended by everyone from fans, fellow artists like Shag, to Hollywood “billboard queen” Angelyne. “FACES” is a collection of twenty brand new paintings by Glenn Barr, exhibited in celebration of the book’s world debut. His paintings feature dreamy portraits of cult film stars Tura Satana and Klaus Kinski alongside scenes and figures straight out of a nostalgic alternate reality. Glenn’s last exhibition at La Luz de Jesus was three years ago- Glenn chose a special canvas this time, ranging of scavenged lumber from the Detroit landscape and old cabinet doors that add even more personality to his new, yet familiar icons. “FACES” by Glenn Barr exhibits at La Luz de Jesus until June 26, 2011. - Caro
