Artist talk: Fuyuko Matsui

Nov. 6, 2019

art.afterhours – Yumi Stynes in conversation with Fuyuko Matsui

Join TV and radio presenter Yumi Stynes for a conversation with one of Japan’s most spellbinding contemporary artists Fuyuko Matsui. Together they speak about the ethereal women in Matsui’s pictures and their link to Buddhism, feminism and Japanese ghost paintings. Highly skilled in nihonga (traditional Japanese painting), Matsui’s paintings are distinctive for their supernatural subject matter, filled with pain, horror and hope. Recorded live at Art After Hours on 6 November 2019 as part of the exhibition Japan supernatural 2019-2020.
