Glenn Barr: Faces

Glenn Barr... Tomorrow (Acrylic on wood). A portrait of Gabrielle Drake as Lt. Gay Ellis on UFO. From the exhibition Glenn Barr: Faces at La Luz de Jesus Gallery. "...Faces explores the images that permeate our collective consciousness and define the iconic. Like the painting of a poised face looking out at us, hidden from the light in a dark pub, or the tattered advertisement hanging forgotten in the back of a garage, they've always been there... and not there. We tend not to see things that have lived with us day in and day out. Once these iconic images of the 'ideal' are gone, we miss them, as though trying to remember an old friend whose name escapes us."
