Human in the Loop

13 May–11 Jun 2023

Gallery COMMON is pleased to announce Human in the Loop, British artist Matthew Stone’s first solo exhibition in Japan. The series of new paintings in this show combine analog, digital, and AI processes, and will be accompanied by a generative painting that produces infinite images based on an algorithm trained on the artist’s works.

With a career spanning over twenty years, Stone’s work across painting, photography, virtual sculpting, performance art, and writing is tied together by a longstanding and critical belief in humanity. His dramatic, Renaissance-like compositions, populated with intertwined digital bodies composed of thick ribbons of analogue paint, seek to expand ideologies that relate to the body itself, addressing the complexities of interconnection in order to illuminate our potential for social unity.
