JONATHAN WAKUDA FISCHER

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON

Combining studies of traditional Japanese art with modern process and content, my work seeks to address a post-globalized world as well as my own personal biracial history. Using the aesthetic of ukiyo-e woodblock prints, I combine anachronisms and layers of homage to explore cultural dualities. In doing so, I feel like I am part of a centuries-old artistic discourse that has long addressed lineage, obsolescence and appropriation.

 

RISK AND REWARD (PHYSIOGNOMIES II)

SPRAY PAINT, STENCIL AND AIRBRUSH ON WOODPANEL, 18 IN. X 36 IN., 2016

'Physiognomies' is an ongoing series of dissected masks and faces with cultural mashups from my Asian American youth, combining both pop and traditional culture.
