Emily Amy Gallery presents Ashley Anderson: Shinobi Marilyn

Ashley Anderson, Shinobi Marilyn, 30" x 30", Gold acrylic on paper
July 28 - September 1, 2012
EMILY AMY GALLERY is pleased to present our summer buy local feature for 2012, Ashley Anderson’s newly completed series, Shinobi Marilyn. The exciting new series consists of works in a variety of media including painting, drawing, digital collage, and animated gifs. The body of work was initially inspired by an online discovery of imagery embedded in a classic sega video game from 1987, entitled “Shinobi.” Convinced the appearance of Marilyn Monroe in the classic game was a posthumous tribute to Andy Warhol created by the game designer in 1980's Japan, Anderson sought to explore the subject further.
