Chie Fuecki at Boston University

  • Boston University, Room 346, 3rd Floor 808 Commonwealth Ave Boston, MA (map)

Chie Fueki is a Japanese American painter. Her intricately patterned and detailed paintings, often created on mulberry paper or wood panel, combine influences from both Eastern and Western decorative and folk arts, and range in subject from sports imagery to more traditional subjects such as memento mori and portraits of friends. Laura Newman wrote that the shimmering surfaces in Fueki’s paintings “give the works a sensuous, intoxicating delight of the sort more often associated with decoration than with thoughtful contemporary painting.” Beyond these surfaces lie rich emotional and sometimes humorous content. She is represented by Mary Boone Gallery in New York City and Shoshana Wayne gallery in Santa Monica, California.
