Chie Fueki
Visiting Artist Lecture Series

“The diverse influences in Chie Fueki’s work may in part reflect her own history. Born in Yokohama, Japan, she was raised in São Paulo, Brazil, earned an MFA from Yale, and now lives in Brooklyn. On small wood panels or large draped sheets of mulberry paper, Fueki’s paintings are embellished with bright dots of color, recalling appliquéd textiles or jewel boxes. These shimmering fields give the works a sensuous, intoxicating delight of the sort more often associated with decoration than with thoughtful contemporary painting. Under the bejeweled surfaces, though, lurk traditional landscape motifs, doubled and redoubled, suggesting Rorschach tests or the ambiguously infinite view in a hall of mirrors.” —Laura Newman, Bomb Magazine, 2002
