I first became aware of Joe Sorren while perusing a recent issue of New York Magazine.  Very little information about Sorren can be found online.  Wikipedia tells us that he was born in Arizona in 1970 and that he began his painting career in 1991.  We are also told that he attended Northern Arizona University where he earned a bachelor of fine arts degree.

My fascination with his work stems from the surrealistic quality of his paintings.  They remind me of dreams, with very stylized figures.  I find there is an ethereal beauty to them.  I'm not sure how he does it, but Sorren magically  captures a hidden light in each of his pieces.  I find them enchanting and I believe you will too.
