"Network" by Glenn Barr...

In the art world there's "Art," and there's "art that goes with the couch." As proud couch owners, we must admit that sometimes we do like it when the art doesn't hurt our brains or clash with the furniture. Detroit's favorite son and connoisseur of all things retro and cool, GLENN BARR, is a man who understands the nuances of a good bit of atomic AbEx and his new smartly-curated group show of lovely amorphisms called "The Abstraction Distraction" at MMODERN GALLERY in Palm Springs turned out first rate easy eye candy by the likes of TIM BISKUP, CHRIS RECCARDI, LYNNE NAYLOR, JEREMIAH KETNER, JOHN BELL, GARY TAXALI, and more this weekend. A background artist from the early days of "Ren & Stimpy," Barr had a heavy hand in revitalizing the decorative abstraction of the 1950 & 60s and much of it is on hand here from fellow R&S alumni Biskup, Naylor, and Reccardi.
