Detroit-based artist Glenn Barr presents a 96-page compilation featuring details from 80 paintings and drawings he created over the past five years. Inspired by the complex expressions and raw emotions revealed by faces, Barr invokes the human condition, creating a multitude of personalities ranging from extraordinarily common to extreme and fantastic. Barr uses pencil and brush to render elegant and elongated necklines, exaggerated eyes, and the gentle or jagged slopes shaping the noses or foreheads of the men, women, and monsters he creates, whether they are beautiful, ordinary, or even grotesque. Expressed in the intricate details of each image, Barr presents a delicate mix of texture, color and line typical of the his loose but carefully executed style. Turn the page to reveal subtle or manic emotions of the wise, the wicked and the wistful. "Faces" brings each reader one step closer to experiencing first hand the compelling mind and interesting characters found in the world of Glenn Barr.

About the Author:

Glenn Barr is one of Detroit's most celebrated and successful underground artists. His paintings have appeared in galleries from Seattle and San Francisco to New York City. Glenn's work has been featured in a variety of comics and graphic novels such as Mad, DC Comics and Paradox Press as well as in a series of self published books called Heep. Barr's contribution to animation include background styling for The Ren and Stimpy Show, Bjork's I Miss You video and The New Woody Woodpecker Show. Recognition for his paintings came with solo exhibitions in the late 1990s Since then, he has exhibited internationally and published compilations of his work in "Lowlife Paradise" (2003), "Haunted Paradise" (2006) and his new volume, "Faces."

Review:

"Distortion and contortion of the FACE gives me the freedom to tell a better story and to create a better composition. Elongating the neck and exaggerating the eyes, the forehead either grossly enlarged or minutely petite, the odd slope of the nose, even the oversized and perhaps misplaced mouth, can reveal the subtlest emotions. Even the hair framing the FACE can stream decorously, capable of communicating a life all its own, one grounded perhaps in vague tragedy or masked rapture. I also love the play of light and shadow, assisting and enhancing the narrative, creating mood and energy within the frame, expressing the emotion. In essence, it's all about dynamics." -- Glenn Barr
