In the Shadow of Corona

“Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning how to dance in the rain”
-- author Vivian Greene

The International Art Market Magazine kicks off 2022 featuring a list of Top Contemporary Artists & Fine Art Photographers of Today from all over the globe. The jury panel believes Eduardo Fujii featured on this list is a name worth remembering and investing in. The Gold List is being distributed worldwide in digital and print editions and is the media sponsor of leading art fairs around the globe!

The “In the Shadow of Corona” body of work consists of conceptual artworks crafted on my iPhone during the 2020 coronavirus lockdown. With a conceptual approach, I reimagine portraiture from the perspective of someone living in isolation dealing with anxiety, fear, and uncertainty. The work investigates the dynamics of the human form and the effects of a novel agent of desolation. It challenges our assumptions of photography. Rather than presenting a factual reality, I prefer to fabricate illusions to expand the realms of our imagination. The images directly respond to everyday experiences collected from an eery surrounding environment. Borrowing concepts of introspection, I create unreal images that reflect personal self-healing rituals.
