"Into the Light no.8" 2016 80 x 80 cm
Fusako Ekuni hails from Tokyo, Japan. Over the past 20 years, her style has varied from a traditional Japanese style to contemporary abstract. A contemplative artist, she now creates homages to the pre-verbal universe, where the color and light interact.
Ekuni layers pure dry pigment and glue, working on several paintings in different stages simultaneously, in a process that can take months. In Japanese, this is known as “iwaenogu.” The colors in her paintings interact magically, almost invisibly, until they complete their harmonic journey. The ritual inherent to Fusako Ekuni's paintings involves the physics of the process itself.
Fusako Ekuni is graduated from Musashino Art University, Faculty of Visual Communication Design and Musashino Gakuen, the faculty of Japanese Art Style Painting.
