"Genichiro Inokuma: Change and Changelessness"

MARUGAME GENICHIRO-INOKUMA MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART


By TOMOHIRO OSAKI
Staff writer

Over his 70-year career, Genichiro Inokuma (1902-1993) made several critical changes to his painting style. He began as a realist portrait artist, then moved onto geometric abstraction after the World War II, before becoming obsessed with portraying faces.

His work initially appears to lack stylistic consistency, but on closer inspection, there are elements that persisted throughout his career. These include repetition of motifs, overall composition and color choices.

This exhibition focuses on such uniting aspects and showcases works of fundamentally different styles side by side to make comparisons easier; Jan. 13-April 4.

Marugame Genichiro-Inokuma Museum of Contemporary Art; (0877 ) 24-7755; 80-1 Hama-machi, Marugame, Kagawa; Marugame Station, JR Yosan Line. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. ¥950. www.mimoca.org.
