VIEW IN MY ROOM
The leather torso is about memories. After completing a phase in life, you get rid of an "old" skin. These are memories. You can hang this away like an old piece of clothing. The older you get, the fuller your “ wardrobe of life". The torso is made of very thin leather. The work hangs on a metal clothes hanger. The work can be hung on a wire on the wall with or free in the room. The torso is made from very thin leather. The work As an artist I work with leather because I find this material fascinating to work with. I love the smell, the pores and the scars. For me it comes very close to the skin of humans. In this material I can best represent what I want to show and tell in my artworks.

Ine van der Horn, visual artist from Utrecht, makes sculptures. These are (parts of) human figures made in leather. Sometimes this basic material is combined with other materials, such as glass, textile, metal or wood. The works can also be presented as a group, consisting of several human forms. Within the context of this whole, each figure stands on its own and tells its own story. Ine's works represent the deeper layers of the human being. The work makes the spectator think about himself and raises questions. How do you stand in life? And in society? The work functions as a mirror in which everyone can see what he or she wants to see. This is different for everyone. What the viewer sees tells a lot about his or her experiences in life. Ine's enthusiasm, passion and openness make the spectator captivated by the story behind each work. She also wants to hear the spectator's story and translates that story to the work of art one has just experienced. Through these encounters and stories, ideas for new works arise. In addition to sculptures, she also makes portraits on paper. These portraits are the result of quick drawings she makes at the beginning of her studio day. These works help her to leave the daily world outside her studio. And in this way, she comes closer to her creative inner self. So, she can fully focus on her creative process. The portraits show emotions. Emotions that are present in her subconscious and come to the surface by working very concentrated and intuitive. She works mainly from the paint tube directly on the paper. This allows her to put a lot of emotion into the movements. This is the basis. From there she works further by making a print of the base on another piece of paper or by making a print using plastic foil. During that print she works the paint further with her fingers. Besides acrylic paint she also uses soft pastel chalk and charcoal. In this way she creates several unique works from the basic painting. Ine studied at the Art Academy in Enschede (AKI) and has her studio in Utrecht. See for more: www.inevanderhorn.nl
