New Sculptures – Last days to see exhibition!
Surfing Girls 2017-2018
Hideki Iinuma (Nagano 1975) belongs to the young generation of Japanese artists who critically analyse the current changes through his sculptures. The girl-image evolved from Neo-Pop forms his main inspiration, as does the changing perception of women in Japanese society. His figures carved from Camphor wood, often exuding a hint of ostentatious sexuality, mostly represent models from Pintarest and Instagram. For women in Japan as for those in Europe these young women are becoming more and more ‘muses’, fashion icons.
With this new ‘Surf girls series’ Iinuma depicts positive energy. An escape from fast fashion consumption.
Iinuma won the Ernst Barlach Prize 2005 and exhibits internationally. In 2016 Hideki Iinuma had a large solo exhibition FIGHTING THE GODDESSES at the Matsumoto Museum Nagano, Japan.
Recently he received First prize at Lumine Meets Art Award Tokio and Rokko Meets Art 2013, Kobe, Japan. His work is widely collected.
