Portrait & Figurative

Ino's stylized portrait and figure drawings are done in acrylic, pencils, charcoal, and pastels and evoke the characters and emotions of the subject with distinct elements of realism and impressionism. Ino's paintings flit restlessly through a variety of painterly strategies, combining interruptions, false starts, and obfuscation into a corrupted yet beautiful polyphonic totality.
