Barron Storey _ SUICIDE

Suicide by Barron Storey

The legendary illustrator and fine artist, Barron Storey, returns to Anno Domini for his fifth solo exhibition with the gallery. Having lost several people close to him to suicide: mother, her brother, ex-wife, and close friend, Storey began asking others: “Did you know anyone who committed suicide?” So many did. Storey made drawings of each one in his journals….pages and pages of them. The resulting art works on canvas are poignant, beautifully expressed moments of deep despair and the struggle to understand “why?”.

An illustrator, graphic novelist, fine artist and noted educator, Barron Storey has created award-winning artworks for the covers and pages of Time, National Geographic, Saturday Review, and The Sandman: Endless Nights, among many others including the cover of the classic novel Lord of the Flies by William Golding (1980 edition.) His artworks are held in the collections of the National Air and Space Museum, the American Museum of Natural History, and Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery.

Storey resides in San Francisco, CA and is a professor at California College of the Arts and San Jose State University.

The 70 art works in this exhibition are in Barron's signature style: some are paintings, some are mixed media and, in a very rare occurrence, original journal pages from Barron's personal sketchbook have been made available. The "Reverso" images included on a number of the canvases are intentional images Barron has drawn/painted on the back of the canvases which Barron' believes changes the experience of the work when the viewer knows it is there (although it's "hidden".)
