Chie Fueki was born in Yokohama, Japan and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Her paintings have been featured in solo exhibitions at Mary Boone Gallery, New York, Shoshana Wayne Gallery, California, The Orlando Museum, Florida and in numerous group exhibitions including Moma PS1, Fredricks Freiser Gallery, and Susan Inglett Gallery, New York. In her recent work, Chie Fueki uses likenesses of her friends as a vehicle for constructing imagined, anthropomorphized space. Although the works operate as representational full-body portraits, their configuration is derived not from observation but from geometric exercise: perspectives fluctuate; volumes collapse, stretch and fold; and matter is agitated into planes of pattern and color that re-align into cohesive images.
