菅木志雄為最具代表性的「物派」藝術家之一，物派為1960年代於日本起始的一個藝術流派，其主旨忠於呈現物體材質的根本，以物體與物體間相互的組成創造出新的觀看方式，透過抑制對於媒材的過多加工，藝術家以此驗證出作品本身的多樣變化。 藝術家的創作在國際間備受肯定，作品典藏於各大國際美術館例如英國倫敦泰特美術館、日本東京都現代美術館、法國巴黎現代藝術博物館等，也曾參與威尼斯雙年展、光州雙年展、巴黎雙年展等國際性大型展出。 菅木志雄運用木材、混凝土、石頭、金屬、工業原料等元素，讓材質進行場域、觀者與物體間的對話，其亦意味作品間富含禪意、哲學的凝視，大膽的組合各式物件重新定義並檢視其中所創造出的平衡與和諧。 Kishio Suga is one of the well-known members of the art movement, Mono-ha. Mono-ha is the art movement that took place in Japan from the 1960s. The central idea of Mono-ha is to present the nature of the materials and to create new ways of seeing through the composition between the presented objects. By restraining over-processing on the materials, the artists verify the diversity of the work itself. Kishio Suga is highly recognized internationally. His works were collected by major international museums such as Tate Modern in UK, Modern of contemporary of art Tokyo, and Musée d\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'Art Moderne in France, etc. He has participated in major international exhibitions such as Venice Biennale, Gwangju Biennale, and Paris Biennale. Kishio Suga uses elements such as wood, concrete, stone, metal, and industrial material to allow the material to engage in a dialogue between the space, the audience and the objects. The works embrace the meaning of Zen. The bold combination of various objects redefines and examines the balance and harmony created in his works.
