Morbid Hybrid Images from Fumie Sasabuchi

Fumie Sasabuchi’s macabre hybrid art images start with pages from fashion editorials. Sasabuchi then draws on top of the images using colored pencils and a ballpoint pen.

Fumie Sasabuchi’s work deconstructs pop culture’s conceptions of beauty through the lens of death. The juxtaposition between the taboo images of death and anatomy with beautiful fashion models meant to sell luxurious clothes is curiously jarring.

These images are currently being shown at Fumie Sasabuchi’s solo exhibition at the Galerie Zink in Berlin.
