STANDING PINE is pleased to present Mayumi Inukai's solo exhibition entitled “The Existence of Everyday Life Brings Us Violence” from Saturday 13th June to Saturday 4th July. Inukai was born in l986 and currently lives and works in Nagoya. Human figures in her works are always painted with sensitive brushwork and a delicate harmony of light and shade. Their pale and melancholy expressions enable her works to have a quiet and distinctive presence to attract viewers. Her new works for this exhibition are created based on the ideas what the existence of everyday life mean to us, and how we can face the pain occurred in our everyday life and live together with the sorrow and grief. They invite viewers to reconsider the preciousness of wounds in our heart aching as days pass and accepting it as a part of ourselves.

Violence in everyday life
Days passing uneventfully are not only peaceful and beautiful.
It has never been special and would cause damage to someone in somewhere.
I would like to consider the cruelness, violence and beautifulness of our everyday life.
