Joel Barr

I like to mix the surreal and the real. In truth, there is little difference to me as I work. Finally, and always, there is a spiritual quest in my paintings. Just as I believe there is a spirit in all things, I try to instill a bit of that spirit into each brushstroke. If I were to ask anything of the viewer, it would be that they bring their own thoughts, questions, investigations and heart to bear on what they see in my work.

My work is represented in public, corporate, and private collections in the U.S., Canada, England, and Mexico, as well as galleries in Tennessee, North Carolina, and Florida.
