Japanese artist KINJO the first overseas solo exhibition at Gin Huang Gallery. The idea《OVER THE BRIDGE》extends from the exhibition UNDER THE BRIDGE in Tokyo. The artist's studio is located between the city and the suburbs of Tokyo. Even if it is not far from the city centre, it must be reached by crossing a bridge. At the same time, OVER THE BRIDGE to Taiwan is the first abroad show.
The exhibition featuring the artist's most well-known "One's Eyes" and "Big Cereal" series, breakthrough the previous creative mode, combines brand logos and canvas collages to a single work, KINJO also bringing the "Big Cereal Box" as a Gin Huang Gallery exclusive series work, and now his works are more identifiable.
More than 80% of the way humans receive information from the outside world comes from the visual pathway, and the eyes are considered the most important and most direct perception. People contact each other and learn new things through what they see then making judgments. However, are we analysing an appearance or reality? 'One's Eyes' is the earliest creations that started to develop, he felt that the relationship between people is peeking and observing then making corresponding actions without knowing each other at all, just like we are groping for each other in a dark space. He combines individual experience with inner emotions, trying to express that everyone worries about how others see themselves, thus get used to hiding a real self. Nevertheless, when you explore and understand more deeply, what you realise will be completely different things.
The artist is good at social observation. He believes the mould of learning and receiving information through the Internet has become globalised, and also notices product packaging, advertising design, billboard, and logo were glutted with our daily life, and far exceeds opportunities to visit art exhibitions. Thereby ask questions about 'Isn't this also a kind of ART's presentation?' Based on the creation of the 'cereal', a rare western product in childhood memory, and developing the 'cereal packaging' series. KINJO attempts to re-examine the relationship between prints, paintings, design, and art in modern society.
