Susumu KOSHIMIZU

Susumu KOSHIMIZU(日本語) 小清水漸 《表面から表面へ - カンヴァス》 1973- 2013 年、カンヴァス・木枠、各 84 × 72 cm

Susumu KOSHIMIZU (1944- ) is one of the representative artists of Mono-ha , a significant movement appeared in late 60’s and 70’s Japan. Koshimizu made his works by minimally intervening with materials; wood, iron, stone, Japanese paper, all exist in our ordinary lives.
By presenting ordinary “things” just as they are in extraordinary circumstances, he is able to strip away preexisting concepts related to their materials and access a new world within them. Mono-ha also changed the framework of art tradition where there had always been the only one art work as objective expression. The influence to succeeding generation has been big and Koshimizu’s works have always been referred to.
