Joe Sorren's oil paintings redefine naturalist scenery such as caves, reefs and seashores, inserting a surreal mood through soft, eerie imagery, thick Impressionist-inspired brushstrokes and animalistic figures caught mid-motion. Although the subjects are often childlike, the postures and weariness betray adult maturity, drawing a fine line between the vulnerable and precocious. Bulls and minotaurs parade guiltily with parasols and umbrellas through both Sorren's original paintings and the sculptures created in collaboration with Jud Bergeron.
