Glenn Barr Pit of the Id Solo Exhibition at Cotton Candy Machine

On the evening of July 17th, The Cotton Candy Machine are welcoming back the Detroit-based master painter, Glenn Barr for his second solo show, "Pit of the Id"! It has been almost three years since Glenn’s first solo show with them, which opened in September 2012, and they are eager to have his work on their walls again. This new show, too, will spotlight a variety of Glenn’s smaller works, although they can promise at least one large centerpiece to enthrall and mesmerize his many fans. While Glenn’s work is always very clearly his own, due in part to his hazy color palette and the almost seductive nature of his often isolated figures, he manages to explore many realms of imagery without ever leaving the universe he has created for himself. For this show, Glenn invites us to view his playful side through some re-imaginings of beloved characters like Judy Jetson and Wilma Flintstone. Painted in his softly gritty style, these ladies appear in moments of solitude, skin exposed and peering out through magnetic eyes. Simply the choice to pull inspiration from these particular retro vixens feels entirely in line with Glenn’s vision. Like many of the elements in his work, they are relics of America’s not-too-distant past; a vision of feminine beauty that spans all the way from the stones of Bedrock to the depths of outer space.

Opening Event Friday July 17th
7pm to 11pm
