Deborah Colton Gallery presents Noriko Shinohara: "Cutie's Love Letter from Malta Island" opening reception
Deborah Colton Gallery presents Noriko Shinohara: "Cutie's Love Letter From Malta Island." Having worked as an artist for many years, she is best known for her humorous series Cutie and Bullie. Beginning in 2006, this series has been composed of drawings, paintings, and prints that feature her characters Cutie and Bullie, and are based on Ushio and herself. Truthful to the point of discomfort, her Cutie and Bullie series chronicles Cutie's early trials of being married to an older man, and the difficulty of being an artist in New York. The scenes, inspired by recent events, show Cutie's triumphs as both herself and the world outside are finally realizing her work and value.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until February 29.
