The first solo exhibition of American artist Ryan Sullivan in Japan presents paintings that reflect Sullivan’s evolving use of casting resins colored with various pigments to create compositions in which layers and gestures resolve into flat planes. The works arise from an intuitive method of working, their different elements bearing witness to a mental process that fluctuates between a state of unconscious- and semi- consciousness.

In a marked contrast to the cast paintings, works on paper mark a deliberate break in technique while compositionally recalling their mood through the free-form, dynamic process and bold constellations of color. The act of layering two kinds of paint with markedly dissimilar properties introduces a parallel element of chance.
