Etsuko Fukaya

Date: 2015-01-19 Category:

Etsuko Fukaya has chosen etching to express the details as it allows her to draw extremely delicate lines. She exclusively works with naked eyes because even the loupe sets in between her eyes and the work becomes obstructive during the process. The finished work is filled with lively creatures that seem to be celebrating the lives given by the artist. An enriched world is stuffed inside the small picture frame and attracts one’s attention to staring into its richness for hours.
