DESCRIPTION

Resin coatings on wood panels | 2020

Gunji’s Collectivity series of wall sculptures examines the relationship between human nature and mother nature. Using brightly colored plastic resin over wood, Gunji uses these materials as metaphors; wood representing the natural world, layered in the bold colored plastic of capitalism. A few of the works in this series draw inspiration from the heads of birds, as Gunji examines the vibrant colors found in nature, then attempts to translate and abstract them through the work. Just as he can never truly replicate the natural world, capitalism can never fully exist in harmony with nature.

About the Artist

Tadahiro Gunji

Multi-media artist Tadahiro Gunji's abstract works in his Collectivity series focus around his use of organic lines formed by the gaps between the separate pieces, and acknowledge the existence of invisible boundaries. These 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.

ADI GOODRICH ON TADAHIRO GUNJI

“I really love these dimensional pieces from Tadahiro Gunji. This particular piece is a great contrast of colors with the warm brown and teal + pink gradient. I'm a real fan of art that isn't set within the bounds of a rectangle or square-these dimensional pieces he creates are more objects to live with than paintings to look at. They are physical; these pieces cast shadows and the glossy surface will reflect any light in the room. I'm obsessed.”
