She is interested in the Ikat technique used in some Asian countries and applies it to artworks, exploring the boundary between craft and art. Rather than painting figurative objects, she is often inspired by the beauty and meaning of the materials themselves. She is also strongly influenced by Virginia DAVIS, who attempted to metaphorically remove the divide between art and craft by colouring and weaving the threads themselves, embedding colour and image within the weave structure.

Runa Takeuchi is a Japanese designer born in 1996. She graduated from Tama Art University, Department of Textile Design in March 2020.

She continues her client work and independent production activities from three axes, centring on textiles, graphics and editorials.

 

Especially in textile design, she has been focusing on the relationship between "plane and solid" since she was in school.  Moreover, she is still exploring the possibilities of textile and surface design from expressions that make use of "materials and technology".

She also continues to consider and record the textile production process and output methods as an experiment.

 

Her graduation work "Composition and Structure" (2019) was selected as an excellent work for graduation work at Tama Art University, and introduced in several web media. It became a major theme research that will lead to her future production activities.
