Statement

Barbara Horiuchi's artwork are created in response to events of American racial and cultural prejudice. As a third generation American of Japanese ancestry, her artwork explores the repercussions of trauma born from issues of injustice welling from past personal familial experiences. Her work documents her own social conscience and an act of resistance against continued intolerance and bias. The manner in which her work is conceived, constructed and created is a reflection of this resistance and a rage against injustice.

Horiuchi studied art under the guidance of Rupert Garcia at San Jose State University and received her M.F.A. in 2010.  She has participated in solo and group exhibitions in San Jose, Los Angeles, Seattle, and San Francisco, the latter notably at the Kearney Street Workshop as well as the de Young Museum. Her work can be found in public and private collections, including the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, Monterey Museum of Art, and the Crocker Art Museum.

Barbara Horiuchi is a lifelong resident of the San Francisco Bay Area.  She is also the founder and editor of the Bay Area Art Grind.
