poster for Yoko Iritani “Reminiscent Honeymoon”

This event has ended.

Yoko Iritani’s colored pencil drawings represent themes of “the home” and “tools” of the Taisho and Showa eras. Her invigoratingly modern works feature tropical colors and a vibrant flatness, depicting scenes such as a wooden house with a veranda, a garden with a stone lantern, and interiors designs blending Japanese and western styles. The colors of her drawings are impressionistic, resembling oil paintings in their rich layering yet still retaining a certain transparency. Ten of Iritani’s works, including new drawings of the three-generational home where her great-grandmother, grandmother, and mother live, are on display. Iritani will be featured at the 2014 Voca Prize Exhibition.
