Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 10, 2014
Thinkspace is pleased to present Kioku No Hana (Flower of Memory), featuring new and recent works by Japanese artist Fuco Ueda. Ueda is renowned for her surreal narrative paintings of slight girls surrounded by all manner of lush hyper-colored flora and fauna. The artist’s work conveys a feeling of ambivalent rapture, as her dreamy subjects are suspended in varying states of silent revelation and resignation; quiet witnesses to recondite mysteries.

The Dark Whimsy of Fuco Ueda

Illustration // Monday, August 05, 2013
Born in Japan in 1979, Fuco Ueda graduated from the Tokyo Polytechnic University of Arts Graduate School in 2003. Her fanciful and surrealistic paintings are rendered in acrylics and powdered mineral pigments on paper, cloth, and wood, depicting sprightly young girls in fantastic abstract worlds surrounded by vibrantly colored flora and fauna of every shape and size. Her whimsical pieces seem to capture the chimerical sensations of a vivid afternoon daydream, where enigmatic visions are suspended in the floating spaces of the unconscious mind. Ueda has been showing her work in Japan and in the USA since 2000, and she is currently living in Tokyo, Japan.
