cueB gallery is proud to present Ryunosuke Goji's first solo exhibition with the gallery.
Goji's paintings explore the possibility of extending the distance between their subject matter and our perception through the borrowing and re-working of c.c.License images from Flickr and Google image searches.
For this exhibition, the images chosen are those of banana tree leaves. These images are enlarged to the point where the pixelation creates blurred, impressionistic effects and becomes abstracted. Partially divorced from their subject matter the process of painting is approached not as a study of botany but rather as a study of topology.
In his own words Goji states that he is "trying to go beyond our normal perception of simple subject matter by studying details of the enlarged image and creating a tangible surface with the physicality of oil paint. This process of filling the canvas with oil paint has been my main pre-occupation for the past few years".
His stated intention is "to evaporate the symbolism which comes with an image in order to discover previously unknown vantage points".
