Parallel: Works by Shingo Honda

August 7th to September 24th, 2021

Curated by Andrzej Kramarz

“I don’t know any of the people in these paintings, and they don’t know each other,” said artist Shingo Honda (1944-2019) about the works he produced between 2000 and 2004 in Los Angeles.
Continued Honda, “I’ve put them in spaces where they’ve never been and where they’ve never been together. Each person lives in their own space, different from mine, different from anyone else's. They have their own reality and it’s always changing. I don’t know what they’re thinking or what they see… our paths may never cross again, but in this parallel world, there’s something that we share: we’re not strangers.”
Honda, who came to the Big Island in 2005, was associated with the Mono-Ha art group in Japan. A striking feature of Honda’s work is his exploration of white space – described by author and art critic Amaury Saint-Gilles as “the liberator and savior connecting the past to the present.”
