Glenn Horowitz Bookseller is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings, works on paper and a sculptural installation by Baptiste Ibar. This is the first major solo exhibition devoted to Ibar's work. He is a young artist on the cusp of broader recognition, a prolific talent with multi-disciplinary gifts--he released an album of music in October, 2007 and his drawings were featured prominently in Michel Gondry's film (and subsequent art exhibition) The Science of Sleep. Ibar's paintings are the product of a visionary visual sensibility coupled with a Blakean conception of history. The work in this show collectively forms a series entitled The Doors. The name refers simultaneously to the everyday and to the transcendent; to the discarded doors that Ibar has found and incorporated into his paintings as well as to ‘doors of perception,' the investigation of which Ibar, like Blake, Huxley and others before him, has made the basis of his artwork.
