Ryo Kinoshita is an artist represented by Galerie Fons Welters. In his practice, Kinoshita focuses on the qualities of painting by investigating its materiality and relation to sculpture. The difference between the two classical painting carriers, paper and canvas, form a starting point, leading to the understanding that the structure of the canvas fabric, as opposed to dense paper, is permeated with gaps. It is this permeability that opened up the medium of painting for Kinoshita. In his painting process, the sensory, and more specifically the haptic quality of the material consequently plays a central role.
