About the work
Kishio Suga 菅木志雄
Japanese, b. 1944
Follow

Kishio Suga is a leading figure of the Mono-ha movement—Japanese for “the school of things”— known for their radical use of elemental materials. He studied oil painting, but is best known for his multi-media sculptures, installations, and spatial interventions. Suga describes his process as one of “re-conceptualization” and of discovering the “unfamiliar phrasing” of what appears familiar in day-to-day life. He favors the use of commonly found-though-unconventional artistic materials, like timber, rock, sand, concrete, and empty space. Using this limited array, the artist explores the relationships and potential associations that arise from combining objects. Suga also makes works on paper with more frequency at the beginning of his career.
