Jun Kaneko @ Rena Brasten SF


Kaneko’s works at their essence are about dialog-the dialog between the artist and his material, between the viewer and the objects, and between the objects themselves. With a deep reverence for space and visual pauses (the Japanese concept of ‘ma’), Kaneko recognizes the delicate harmony between these three conversations.
The large scale ceramic heads are both tranquil and energized, their meditative expressions counterbalanced by bright, rhythmic patterning. When placed facing each other, the relationship between the figures becomes pronounced, and the space between them charged. Kaneko’s ceramic constructions are three dimensional canvases which show a blend of his Eastern and Western sensibilities.
