AZITO is pleased to introduce the super intricate artworks by Etsuko Fukaya.
Drawn with the intimacy of a needle and the intense concentration of the naked eye, Etsuko Fukaya’s etchings appear to challenge the very possibilities of boundaries and scale.
Born in 1981, Fuyaka is a prominent young artist, celebrated for her intricate artworks depicting lush, vibrant worlds where flora and fauna coexist within small frameworks that rarely spill over 12in x 12in. Her creatures have a life of their own. Not a hair is missing from any animal, and every bird’s feathers are delineated with surprising exactitude, as if to push the physical limits of detail itself. These delicate etching marks reveal surprising amounts of information in compact spaces.
Thus, with dizzying levels of precision, Fukaya creates worlds where animals and plants enjoy the richness of their tiny worlds, as if to remind us of the possibilities that lie outside their edges.
