Preview: Barron Storey "Soliloquy" @ Lebasse ProjectsJuxtapoz // Friday, 10 Feb 2012
Legendary illustrator and artist, as well as teacher to the likes of James Jean and David Choe, Barron Storey opens a new solo show, Soliloquy, at LeBasse Projects this Saturday, February 11. The exhibition will feature large-scale works from the artist.
As LeBasse notes, "Storey's visual journaling of thought and experience is nuanced by a subdued palate with subtle accents of expressive color. The effect is further enhanced by the inclusion of textual passages creating a pronounced literal narrative accompanying the visual themes. Storey's work engages and provokes with this emotive exploration, and granting us access to a world of self-revelation expression."
And as Mr. Choe notes, "Nobody draws better than Barron. Not you, not your little sister, your architect dad, not your rebellious ex-boyfriend who draws with his own
blood, not the most talented kid at your art school. Not your favorite artist in the whole world; I've seen the work with my own eyes. Nobody draws better than The Barron."
