Haunted Paradise by Glenn Barr
Glenn Barr’s robots, creatures, and vixens live in a seedy yet swinging, 1960s universe, drenched in the haze of a postindustrial hangover. Working out of the burgeoning lowbrow movement in Detroit, Barr creates kinky inner sanctums adorned with disembodied cherubs, morally bankrupt babes, and sizzling femme fatales. Influenced by both pulp art and comics, Barr’s work, beautifully sampled in this collection, is the visual equivalent of a David Lynch film. Glenn Barr’s work has been seen in various print and television media including Mad, The Ren and Stimpy Show, and Bjork’s I Miss You video. This beautiful hardcover is the followup to Barr’s successful first monograph, Lowlife Paradise.
