|Arkansas Arts Center Presents Jun Kaneko|
LITTLE ROCK, AR.- The Arkansas Arts Center presents the exhibition Jun Kaneko, on view through August 2, 2009, in the Townsend Wolfe Gallery.
An extensive representation of Jun Kanekos work, this exhibition features approximately 39 works including ceramic sculpture, drawings and paintings created by the artist over the past two decades. Born in Nagoya Japan, Kaneko became involved in the west coasts Clay Revolution that discarded the functional and ornamental traditions of ceramic arts in favor of an unconventional, expressive sculptural medium.
Kaneko studied with many of the artists who formed the Contemporary Ceramics Movement and is internationally recognized for interlacing the dynamics of color, form, volume and space in his work. Kaneko refers to his various sculptures as chunks, heads and dangos, which can stand as high as 13 feet. His creations reflect contemporary abstraction and typically embody vibrant colors while focusing on line and geometric shapes.
Jun Kaneko is comprised of works from the collection of the Kaneko Studio. The exhibition was curated by Jun Kaneko and was developed and managed by Smith Kramer Fine Art Services, an exhibition tour development company in Kansas City, Mo. The exhibition is sponsored by John and Robyn Horn; Windgate Charitable Foundation; and Centennial Bank.
