After suffering an illness in 1973, Genichiro Inokuma (1902–1993) decided to leave New York. Landing in Hawaii the following year he was heartened to be greeted by brilliant blue skies, and vowed to make this a new departure. Setting up studio in Honolulu, Inokuma made paintings inspired by the natural environment of Hawaii and the fascination with the cosmos.This exhibition showcases work from Inokuma’s Hawaiian years, in which sustained by new surroundings, he pursued his personal painting path with greater freedom than ever.
