勝山八千代

182mm × 128mm × 20mm 256 pages, softcover, offset print
1st Edition of 1000
Publication date: October 2022

モノクロームで味のあるイラストが特徴のイラストレーター、勝山八千代による作品集。

本書は、世界各国の16名の架空のコレクターのコレクションを紹介するというコンセプトでまとめた作品集。
器、工具、果物、家具、ドールハウスにスポーツ用品……。コレクターたちの偏愛によって集められた“モノ”たちは、本来の用途や意味からは離れ、独自の存在感を放っています。

作家はこれまで、何度も何度も同じモチーフを描くことでそれぞれの微細な差異や、それそのものにしかない輝きを捉え、描くことで“モノ”を蒐集してきました。本作では、作家が長年描きためてきた作品を再構成し、描き下ろし作品も多数収録。愛くるしい“モノ”の魅力的な佇まいと、その背景にいる人との関係に想いを馳せる「無用の用」な一冊です。

Yachiyo Katsuyama is an artist who creates charming illustrations in monochrome.

This book is a collection of works based on the concept of introducing the collections of 16 fictional collectors from around the world.
Vessels, tools, fruits, furniture, dollhouses and sporting goods. …… The “objects” collected by them preoccupations are far removed from their original uses and meanings, but have their own unique presence.

She has been collecting “objects” by painting the same motifs over and over again, capturing their subtle differences and their own unique brilliance. In this work, she reconstructs the works she has painted over the years, and includes many newly drawn works as well. It is a “useless” book that makes us think about the charming appearance of lovely “objects” and their relationship with the people behind them.
