Nakakuki Akari

PROFILE
She sculpts the white human body with smooth skin. Charms of her work come from the texture, neutral and somewhat inorganic juxtaposed with the soft form of human body. If 20 century’s expression is to expose man and woman overtly, her expression is beyond the sex and, so to speak, the representation of beautiful form itself regardless of the sex.
Smooth skin as white pottery is appealing yet perplexing to us, recalling us the sexual eroticism. She is a young talent just graduated from Tokyo University of Art and we are looking forward to her burgeoning in full bloom.
