Resin coatings on wood panels | 2021
These new works in Brooklyn-based visual artist Tadahiro Gunji’s Collectivity series are born from the space between things. The concept of “ma” is based on the subtle awareness of space and time in Gunji’s home country of Japan. In grounding his work in this subtle principle, the resulting multimedia works —rendered variably in glossy resin, wood, and paper—are an exploration of color and shapes within the space between old and new, geometric forms and organic lines, sculpture and painting. By using materials that reflect the surrounding environment, Gunji hopes to spark feelings in the margins — in the “ma” between the work itself and the environment.

We invite you to explore our curated collection of artworks created with unconventional mediums.
Framing & Mounting
Our frames are produced from the best quality wood, primarily from Italy. Each is custom cut and assembled by hand to fit your art. Hanging hardware included!
THIN GALLERY FRAME
This modern profile was designed for artists and photographers. Narrow on the front and deep on the sides, our slim mouldings provide a clean, sharp frame for your art, and allows all focus to be on your gorgeous work.
3/4" wide; 1 1/8" deep
UV - PROTECTIVE ACRYLIC
Our acrylic is more expensive than glass, but we use it because it’s clearer, far more impact resistant, and protects your art against UV rays. Framing-grade acrylic has become a new standard in framing because of its “clear” benefits.
THE FULL BLEED
Works are framed flush with the edge of your print without a mat. Request border modifications and spacers, which keep the work from touching the glass.
Adds a white core mat with a bevel cut opening to the edge of your print. If your work has a signature or edition numbering, we will automatically mat around it unless otherwise specified.
We use 4-ply, conservation-grade, acid-free mat board. We match whites and off-whites to your exact piece. Acid-free materials protect your art from yellowing or becoming brittle.
Floating a piece allows for a full view of the face and sides of the artwork. Floating is recommended for original drawings and paintings or any piece produced on specially trimmed paper.
Multi-media artist Tadahiro Gunji's Collectivity series focuses around his use of organic lines formed by gaps between the separate pieces, and acknowledge the existence of invisible boundaries. The gaps also represent the relationship between space and matter; each part of the work trying to remind us of the complexity and composition of all particles. Select public collections include: The Museum of Modern Art (Toyama), Rad Hourani Art Foundation, and Italy Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa.
