The Art of Fuco Ueda
The Giorgio de Chirico fan in me liked the works of this Japanese illustrator I stumbled upon yesterday — 아픔이 느껴지는 성폭행당한 한 화가의 그림. The headline suggests that her artwork expresses the pain of sexual abuse. Interestingly, both perpetrators and victims of the abuse she depicts are female.
"The heroines of Fuco Ueda’s paintings are often on the brink of danger" — Japanese Surrealist Fuco Ueda. "These beauties are at once victioms and agents. But whether the threats are self-inflicted or not, they make for fierce and beautiful narratives."
