My Sculptural Expression - Susumu Koshimizu

Susumu Koshimizu is a Japanese artist known for making sculptures that expose the surface quality of different materials. He is considered a key member of the Mono-ha movement (‘School of Things’), which reacted against the embrace of technology and visual trickery in mid-1960s Japanese art.

The Mono-ha artists sought to understand ‘the world as it is’ by exploring the essential properties of materials, often combining organic and industrial objects and processes. 
'From Surface to Surface'  currently on display at Tate Modern
