Painfully Beauteous – The Artwork of Fuco Ueda

Painfully Beauteous – The Artwork of Fuco Ueda

The internet gasped audibly when Fuco Ueda launched her website last year. Ueda’s works of in-exhalable beauty (acrylic and powdered mineral pigments on paper, cloth, and wood) are cloaked with an intangible darkness which is sometimes cloyingly subtle. However, in Fuco Ueda’s earlier works from 2000-2001 themes of stripey socks, incandescent sea creatures and schoolgirl honey drool give way to lost innocence, vulnerability, clutched skulls, and defenseless goldfish. A period so dark, it would best be described in the voice of Werner Herzog. I’ll shoot him an email.

  • These are incredible. I feel like she’s turning that image of harmless, gentle femininity on its head and making it dangerous and painful like it sometimes is to be a girl!

  • Love the artwork! And I’m just noticing your new header, fantastic.

    Love Grace.

  • At the same time, an inescapable function of fashion in most countries is to serve as a status symbol.

  • Wow! I have to admit these are great artwork, to be honest it represent the art of fashion that we need, specially for women.

  • I just want to tell you that I’m newbie to blogging and absolutely savored your blog site. Very likely I’m likely to bookmark your blog . You surely have awesome writings. With thanks for revealing your website page.

  • This is the perfect website for anybody who would like to find out about this topic. You understand so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a topic which has been written about for years. Great stuff, just excellent!

  • I was recommended this web site by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my trouble. You are amazing! Thanks!

  • A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this subject, it might not be a taboo matter but usually people don’t discuss these subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!

  • Very good website you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get feed-back from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks a lot!

  • I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

  • I am really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any suggestions to help fix this issue?

  • The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  • I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I found this in my search for something regarding this.

  • Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  • May I simply just say what a comfort to uncover an individual who genuinely understands what they are talking about on the internet.

It will appeal to a lot of viewers including adults and children as it involves good humor throughout.

  • I believe that a property foreclosure can have a significant effect on the borrower’s life. Real estate foreclosures can have a 7 to 10 years negative relation to a applicant’s credit report. A borrower having applied for home financing or any loans for that matter, knows that the particular worse credit rating is definitely, the more difficult it is to secure a decent mortgage. In addition, it could affect the borrower’s capacity to find a decent place to let or rent, if that becomes the alternative property solution. Good blog post.

  • I like what you guys are up also. Such smart work and reporting! Keep up the superb works guys I have incorporated you guys to my blogroll. I think it’ll improve the value of my web site :)
