Review: Artscene

October 1, 2016 - Genie Davis

Jun Kaneko’s Mirage appears to be just that, images so impossible and arresting that we stop to take it all in. One of the most visually pleasurable and immersive exhibitions I’ve seen recently, Kaneko’s large-scale works are astonishing in their complexity.

We are so pleased for gallery artist, Jun Kaneko, whose sculptures Glen Brown calls "a

Jun Kaneko, Gerald Peters Gallery
August 8 - September 14, 2014

"Viewers leave the show with a deeper appreciation, not only for Kaneko's works, but for all ceramic forms. 'Universal' is often a hallmark of enduring art, and here is no exception.

The Space Between: Jun Kaneko's works in ceramics and other medi, are often monumental but always subtle.

"'My interest is in the creative spark. That's the idea, the energy, and each idea has a perfect match of material to work with. It can't always be clay or paint. I'm open to the opportunity of finding the medium to fit the idea.' Still he inisists, 'craftsmanship is the hardest thing. You have to have the ability to make that material change into what you were thinking. That's the craftsmanship, and noby has fantastic technical ability from the beginning.'"

Medium Man: Jun Kaneko's creative spark can't be contained. 

"The breadth of Kaneko's work is truly unusual. But if you talk to him, flowing from one medium to another is incidental. He believes every new project requires the same things: imagination and a deep understanding of materials. And every project, whether a set design or a bronze sculpture, begins the same way - with a 'creative spark.'"

Jun Kaneko: Pure Form and the Indusry of Collaboration

"Jun Kankeo is a magical man who says little. He leads an exemplary focused life that connects him directly into prodigious and profound art making. From the space within this focus and silence Kaneko is probably making the largest hand-built movable ceramic art forms on Earth."
