This major exhibition features glazed, and Raku fired ceramic by internationally renowned sculptor, Jun Kaneko. His initial start as a painter is evident in his sculpture, where monolithic ceramic “Dangos” (the Japanese word for dumpling) become three-dimensional, inflated canvases. His graphic, yet painterly, lines and dots are analogous with the Japanese Shinto concept of the “Ma,” which loosely translates into “attachment through space.” Through intentional repetition of brushstrokes and motifs, Kaneko creates a kind of abstract imagery that is recognizable and uniquely his. Kaneko’s work can be found in more than 100 Museum collections and institutions around the world.
