Colored pencil on paper | 2016
In this series titled “Collectivity”, Gunji uses organic lines formed by the gaps between the different pieces to acknowledge the existence of invisible boundaries that we meet in everyday life. The artist purposefully creates the work with a quality that makes them appear to look like drawings; the resin emphasizing the invisible lines that give the boundaries equal recognition, as the depth, spaces, and the subject matter of the work all come into equal focus. These references can also be seen in traditional Asian art, which the artist was inspired by during the creation of this series.

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.
