Nikki McClure Giant Robot

Nikki McClure’s work echo her own cycles in life. From pre-children, to a baby, to a kid growing up, McClure captures it with paper cut pieces using an X-acto knife that are delicate and beautiful. Some pieces echo a working person’s world, others echo motherhood, and many celebrate the outdoors.

McClure has numerous published books, prints, and cards. Her annual calendar remains popular as ever. McClure once performed music and occasionally still does. She’s worked with numerous musicians and brands including Patagonia and lives in Olympia, Washington.

Giant Robot has supported her work from an early time, and it’s appeared at GR2 and in the Japanese American National Museum.

Giant Robot Presents Mari Inukai ‘Marilla Blue and Orange’

Mari Inukai Marilla Blue and Orange

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.
