    Default Fuyuko Matsui

    An artist from Japan who's known for creating beautiful, yet disturbing work. A while back I watched an interview with her (which I can no longer find) and I found her to be rather interesting.







    Some quotes:

    "I want to create a sympathy, a strong feeling, between the viewer and myself... In a way Iím doing something that the viewer canít do himself. Itís like people who occasionally think about jumping under a train. In my art Iím actually jumping under the train. That shock Ė Iím doing it for you."

    "There are various things that inspire my paintings: first a strong concept, second I have a mental picture and a concept, and third I just randomly paint until something starts to appear, and, then, there are all of these different ways combined."

    "I want to express the paradox that exists when you're depressed, when considerable strain weighs down your body, yet your emotions are floating around."

    "Yes, Iím narcissistic, but not in the sense of spending the day looking at myself in the mirror. The word narcissism has negative connotations, but it is simply a mechanism for resisting personal phobia, the result of strengthening personal identity."

    Yeah, Ni INFp is my first impression as well.

    Yeah, Ni-INFp is probably right, and it's probably why I find her so interesting. Things about her remind me vaguely of myself, especially:

    "There are various things that inspire my paintings: first a strong concept, second I have a mental picture and a concept, and third I just randomly paint until something starts to appear, and, then, there are all of these different ways combined."

The way of focusing on a subject, oftentimes humanoid, so it's in the foreground and everything else sort of blurs around it/isn't drawn in/is faint.
    Oh yeah, Audrey Kawasaki. I have a feeling she's probably IEI too. As Hugo pointed out, all of the girls in her paintings have the faces and bodies of IEI girls, haha.
