Artist Statement

Barbara Horiuchi creates pictorial, video and installation work. As a third generation American of Japanese ancestry, her work is rooted in a desire to unearth her familial history while addressing the associated historical injustices and wounds West Coast Japanese experienced in the last century relating to immigration, the politics of exclusion, marginalization, loss, and resistance. The intersection of the politics of injustice and the personal experiences of her family inform her work and shape the manner in which it is conceived, constructed and created.

Bio

Barbara Horiuchi was born and raised in San Jose, California and currently resides in the San Francisco Bay Area.
