Resin Coating on wood panels | 2023
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.

“My works are born from Japanese concept 'Ma', means 'gap', 'space', 'pause' between things, especially the space between opposing things.”
