Born and raised in Japan, Jun Kaneko moved to the United States to study ceramics. Not able to speak the language, he was forced to focus purely on the visual. His painting background is evident in his work, where his monolithic ceramic “dangos” (Japanese word for dumpling) become 3D, inflated canvases. Working primarily with graphic, yet painterly, lines , his rhythmic designs are analogous with the Japanese Shinto concept of the “Ma”, which means “attachment through space”.
