Takashi Hinoda, born in Kobe, 1968, works and lives in Kyoto. He graduated from Osaka University of Arts, Major in ceramics, 1991. Currently, teaches at Kyoto City University of Arts. His works are collected in Japan and in foreign countries including The National Museum of Art, Osaka, Japan, Musee de la Ville de Vallauris, France, The Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park, Shiga, Japan, Arizona State University Art Museum, U.S.A and Mint Museum of Craft + Design, North Carolina, U.S.A.

Takashi Hinoda has expressed his ceramic works using graphic and characters inspired by Japanese manga and American comics. Between 2004 and 2005, Hinoda began experimenting with the two-dimensional space on the surface of his forms. He uses a unique style of drawing and vivid color areas, skillfully manipulating self-adhesive sheets. The three-dimensional forms intersect and co-exist with the two-dimensional expression on their surface. Hinoda refers to this world as “2.5 dimensions.” In it, we move back and forth between real and virtual dimensions with a sense of something strange occurring in the encounter with eccentric forms. The installation made by Hinoda is also remarkable. He creates the space by cutting and putting self-adhesive sheets, like his works, on the wall, the floor and the ceiling . It seems like getting the graphic and the lines out from the surface of his works. Hinoda’s works and his installation have appreciated in Japan, Asian countries, U.S. and in Europe.

In this exhibition at imura art gallery kyoto, we present about 6 new works. Hinoda will show the audiences his original vision for the form of body in the future as-yet-unknown. This is the second solo show for him at our gallery since 2009.

This solo show will travel at imura art gallery tokyo from 6 August to 3 September, 2011.
