title:Slightly Tilting / 少し傾く
artist:Korehiko Hino / 日野之彦
media:oil on canvas
sheet size:H60.6 × W50 cm

2005年のVOCA賞受賞後、インパクトの強い人物像を描く独特の画風が一躍注目されることとなった日野之彦。その後は、静物画や風景画、水彩、色鉛筆によるドローイング、彫刻作品などあらゆるメディアでの表現に挑戦し続けてきました。 日野は筑波大学在学中、人体や静物画のデッサンを多く描いてきたと語ります。現在の日野が描く現実とも非現実とも捉えることのできるギリギリの境界線上に存在する世界観は、大学時代からの修練による画力のもとに成立していると言えるでしょう。



Korehiko Hino dramatically acquired attention after he had won the VOCA Prize in 2005 for his unique style of conspicuous portraits. Since then, Hino has continuously attempted to expand his practice into varied genres and media including still life, landscape, watercolor, colored pencil drawing, sculpture, and more others. Hino speaks that he drew a number of portraits and still lifes while studying in University of Tsukuba. Perhaps the unique world in his recent works, which lies right on the boundary between the reality and the unreality, were possible by the drawing skills he acquired through repetitive trainings he had been continuing since university.

Since receiving the VOCA Prize in 2005, Hino has consistently acquired attention for his unique conspicuous portraits that come from a wide variety of motifs, which most of them depict the artist’s own body.

Hino explains the reason why he challenged to depict models this time was because he put his utmost importance on “sensing the presence of a real human being right in front of my eyes.” He also commented that when he created sculptures in 2015, he noticed that humans bodies looked differently when seen from a different distance even when seen from the same angle, which inspired him to create model portraits on this occasion. As he explained that he had been “constantly exploring distinctive images through deforming facial and body features in past portraits, and these new works had given him the sense of discovery of a new standard in deformation of a human body,” his interest was drawn to how the subject matter can be seen differently depending on the distance between the model and himself.

The elements of the model, which look different depending on the distance—for example a few meters away when looking down at the whole body, and approaching closer when observing details—are integrated into one figure. As a result, the texture of the skin, the hair, the shape of the body and the reflection of the eyes are drawn more clearly, and the identity such as the emotion and individuality of the model is eliminated as in the previous works, and approaches closer to the very existence of the human body more than ever.
