Below is the press text regarding the solo exhibition from 2021.
“Fuko Ueda, born in 1979 in Tochigi prefecture. She completed the graduate school of Tokyo Polytechnic University in 2003. She won a lot of awards such as “Hitotsubo Exhibition” in 2000, JACA Special Award in 2001, and VOCA Exhibition in 2004, and she attracted a lot of attention at many exhibitions and art fairs both in Japan and abroad. Started energetic activities and continues to the present.

Fuko Ueda draws a daydream-like scene that mixes reality and fantasy that a girl experiences with unique colors and color schemes. When people are at the mercy of the flood of images and have the joy of being able to approach a place that is nowhere else, the work depicted with personal feelings, on the other hand, is a reality for people of the same age who live in modern times and are saturated with substances and information. Create sympathy as a mirror. Large chrysanthemums with enlarged petals that have been repeatedly bred to make them more beautiful, and goldfish that require conscious maintenance to maintain the varieties. Those that have been improved. This exhibition consists of new works and recent works created based on Fuko Ueda’s interest in artificial beauty and desires. “This is because we can see the fundamental desires of human beings, which is similar to the image of a woman who has been superimposed on the ideal” beauty “in art expression from ancient times. As an entity that cannot grow naturally without the hands of others, her skill will further enhance her “beauty”. “Ueda said.

People always do not doubt the position of the viewer of “beauty”, but is it possible to reverse the boundaries of that position? We hope that you will take a look at the works of Fuko Ueda, who continues to explore the possibilities of expression while holding such desires.
