Ro2 Art Gallery presents Yasuyo Maruyama: "Mind's Eye" opening reception
Ro2 Art will present "Mind’s Eye," a solo exhibition featuring new works by artist Yasuyo Maruyama.
Maruyama’s first solo exhibition at Ro2 Art is a graceful depiction of existing people translated into new identities with an earnest expression of gratitude toward her subjects. Focusing on the human face, Maruyama considers the atmosphere, colors, and gestures during her everyday interactions with people to conceive her new ‘someones.’
Vibrant realms of solid color surround her subjects, contrasted by refined details drawing the gaze toward shimmering prismatic eyes. The artist describes recovering from atopic dermatitis as a teenager as spurring her affection for the human face. Along with her outside subjects’ stories, she painted in personal difficulties and ideations. However, despite her past hardships and the current events affecting our lives, Maruyama seeks to nurture a caring heart. Mind’s Eye emanates a hopeful spirit of tranquility in a benevolent act of storytelling.
The exhibition will open with an artist reception from 12-5 pm. Attendance to the reception will be limited to groups no larger than ten over 20 minute intervals. Reservations must be made in advance.
Following the opening reception, the exhibition will be on display through December 5.
