New American Paintings

Work from my Sitcom Series was recently included in the latest Pacific Coast edition of New American Paintings. In her introductory essay, juror Apsara DiQuinzio of the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, wrote about the current resurgence of painting and the plurality of styles represented today, likening strategies of artistic production to a game of chess. I was pretty thrilled to see that she mentioned my work specifically as an extension of genre painting (painting scenes of everyday life),

"Inouye, in particular, engages a pop vernacular portraying characters from the eponymous TV shows The Golden Girls, CHiPs, and The Dukes of Hazzard, rendering them in thin washes of watercolor, isolated from their televisual settings, and floating in a white, indeterminate ground that dislocates them in time and space."

Thank you!!
