Sadamasa Motonaga


A self-taught artist, Sadamasa Motonaga (1922-2011) was inspired by his natural surroundings and nature itself, taking interest in aqueous qualities, fluidity of pain, water and the natural phenomena of gravity. Motonaga experimented with the liquid properties of paint and water and how they could be exploited through light and fluidity thus creating "the world's first water sculpture" named, 'Work (Water)', later translating them into paint on canvas.
