The Department of Art, Art History, and Design welcomes Chie Fueki as part of the Stanley and Selma Hollander Visiting Artist, Designer, and Scholar Lecture series. Visually-striking and intricate, Fueki’s paintings picture contemporary life in spectacular motion. Created through a complex system of painting, drawing, cutting, and collaging onto wood panels, her practice is centered around the depiction of figures, symbols, and abstract spaces using multi-layered ornamental surfaces and fields of color. Drawing on her experience as a Japanese-born artist growing up in Brazil and later practicing in the United States, Fueki’s work embraces the visual language from these three distinct cultures. As Fueki explains: “I consider myself a mixed-language painter with interest in eastern and western perspectival systems, architectural graphics, pop animation, pre-Renaissance European painting, and exuberant color.”
