Yuki Maruyama presents a site-specific installation that explores the effect of binocular rivalry as experienced through anaglyph 3D glasses. To the bare eye, her red and cyan drawings produce a dynamic retinal experience of their own. When viewed through a pair of analog 3D glasses, the works flicker between two- and three-dimensions. The parts cannot be resolved as a complete whole creating the result of an electric and vertiginous internal tension that is simultaneously bodily and psychological, anxious and euphoric.
Maruyama received her MFA from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco and currently lives and works in Oakland, CA. She has completed residencies at the Domestic Art Project Yomoyama-So (Japan); The Compound Gallery (Oakland); Anderson Ranch Arts (Snowmass Village, CO); and Kala Art Institute (Berkeley, CA). She also received the 2015 Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant and has had work represented in galleries in both Japan and the United States.
