“Joe Sorren injects a surreal mood through soft, eerie imagery, thick brushstrokes, and animalistic figures caught in motion. Created with oil on panel, Sorren’s newest body of work, When the Rain Comes is a story about darkness and light.
“Sometimes, when things are darker in life, you can find yourself in front of doors you didn’t know where there before. This is a show about walking though those doorways and the light that can be found in the sincere letting-go-ness of things” states Sorren.
Sorren’s artwork has appeared in various publications, including The New Yorker, Time and Rolling Stone. Warner Bros. and Atlantic Records have also used his art. A mural of his adorns an outdoor wall at Heritage Square in Flagstaff, Arizona. The 40 feet by 30 feet painting took 11 months to complete. Sorren lives in Flagstaff, Arizona and loves to run and jump.” (from La Luz de Jesus Gallery)
“When the Rain Comes” runs through April 29, 2012. To see more of Sorren’s work, visit JoeSorren.com.
