Chie Fueki's Anahita series is built on layers of diverse influences and references. She pushes and pulls images borne from her personal relationships in and out of an interweaving of pop culture influences and venerated traditions. When she came to work at UCF's Flying Horse Editions in the summer of 2013, it was our desire to introduce her to the printmaking options that would correspond to her process, and echo the flavors of her multi-cultural upbringing in Japan and Brazil. In this suite of prints, Fueki utilizes woodcut—a long-honored technique in Japan—along with brilliant, non-traditional media (foaming ink, glitter, hand-dyed papers) that hint at the tropical textures of Brazilian culture. To further mix the influences, the image, a portrait of her friend Anahita, has been been stylized in the manner of Japanese anime. The resulting artworks simultaneously allude to the prints of Houksai and Hiroshige while retaining the exuberance of Tropicália and carnival.
