On October 25, Giant Robot presents Mari Inukai‘s solo exhibition ‘Marilla Orange and Blue.’ The Marilla Blue and Orange exhibition melds two worlds of Mari Inukai. Her expressionistic portraiture is now blurring and stepping into her other world, the imaginary.
Her fictional characters, a team of illustrative creatures, which are part of her canon, appear as headdresses for her portraiture subjects. Facial expressions continue to appear pensive, yet inviting us to wonder.
Inukai’s pencil drawings continue in the same direction. ‘Marilla Blue and Orange’ will include oil paintings and pencil drawings; you can preview more of the works here.
‘Marilla Blue and Orange’ opens on Saturday, October 25 with a reception from 6:30-1opm. The show will run through November 12.
