Yuri Ikeguchi

Painter. She studied design at the Kyoto Institute of Technology, and has also studied for a year at the Université National d’Architecture de Paris, L’Avillette.
She reproduces her own paintings in different media.

Yuri Ikeguchi, a painter, found joy in her daily trips to the supermarket in her restricted life. After a while, going from shelf to shelf of a wide variety of products, from food to miscellaneous goods, became a “journey” that liberated her mind. The colorful products lined up in supermarkets are comically drawn on paper and cut into pieces, and then the self-created pictures are recreated one by one on pieces of wood, in a complex and unique way.

This is the video to show how to create artworks (Japanese only).

Also, for the first time in this solo exhibition, he will try his hand at “still life painting.
Color, composition, touch, and perspective.
The objects sold in supermarkets will play a new role and delight our eyes.

Statement by Yuri Ikeguchi for this solo exhibition:

In 2020, the coronavirus changed our lives. Going out was restricted.
Going to the supermarket every day became a pleasure. It’s a colorful and exciting visual experience with lots of products. It’s the universe. Climbing a mountain or going to the city used to be a journey for me, but now going to the supermarket is a journey.

Now going to the supermarket is a trip. I input the trip to the supermarket, and I output the pictures.
