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 wood and paper — are an exploration of color and shapes within the space between old and new, geometric forms and organic lines. 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. In these new works, Gunji takes a step forward in the evolution of his process and philosophy, using texture and patterns to explore the space between figuration and abstraction. “I think I may be onto something with this study,” he says. We agree.

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.
