About the Artist

堀内結

堀内結さんは、東京を拠点に活動するアーティストです。2011年に多摩美術大学の油絵専攻を卒業したのち、多様な作家活動を展開してきました。絵画、イラストの他、刺繍を使った作品も手がけています。

彼女の作品は、自然に存在する美や豊かな色彩に主題を得ることが多く、また刺繍作品に関しては、使い古されたテーブルクロスやエコバッグなどのファウンド・オブジェクトにデザインを施してきました。それによって、彼女は物そのものに内在する記憶や物語と戯れるだけではなく、作品を身につけたり、持ち運びできるものへの変容を試みてきました。

Open Letter での個展『FROM BEHIND ~For Her.~』では、堀内さんがこの1年間取り組んできた女性の後ろ姿(From behind)を描いた水彩画の新作を展示いたします。

後ろ姿の女性ばかりを描いている時
私の元にもう会えない友人がいるという知らせが入った
彼女と過ごした時間を辿るうち
作品の女性達が彼女の姿を投影しているかのように見えた
彼女が去っても彼女が見える
魔法のような感覚だった
一度絵から離れた私が絵を再開したことも魔法のようなものだ
今は自然と描きたい気持ちがあふれている
彼女はそのことを伝えるためにやってきた
その彼女を私は絵でつづりたい
(堀内 結)

Yui Horiuchi is a Tokyo based artist whose works cover wide range of mediums from painting, illustration to embroidery. Since acquiring her B.F.A degree in Oil Painting from Tama Art University, Tokyo in 2011, she has been developing her multiple art practice. Her works, regardless of medium, tend to be inspired by incomparable beauty and rich colors found in nature. For her embroidery works, she stitches her designs on found fabrics like used tablecloths and cotton bags not only to play with narratives and memories of the materials but also to make her artworks portable and wearable.

In the exhibition “FROM BEHIND ~For Her.~” at Open Letter, we will show Horiuchi’s new watercolor works that she had been working on in the past year.

While I was drawing girls from behind,
I was told that my friend had just past away.
Through my recollection about her,
I started to realize that she was in my drawings all the time.
I thought it was magical.
Once I parted from painting, but I have picked up my brush again.
I believe that was also magical.
I am now filled with passion for creating works.
She came back to tell me that.
I am going to continue drawing for her.
( Yui Horiuchi )
