Chie Fueki - Artists - DC Moore Gallery

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.” 

Chie Fueki lives and works in Beacon, NY. Fueki was born in Yokohama, Japan, and raised in São Paulo, Brazil. She earned her MFA at Yale University and her BFA at The Ringling College of Art and Design.

She is a future resident artist at the KinoSaito Residency Program, and has a forthcoming solo exhibition, Chie Fueki: Petal Storm Memory, curated by David Ross, at KinoSaito, Verplanck, NY (2024).
