Biography: Kaoru Matsumoto received educational support of Kyoto prefecture and he traveled to Central America and South America from 1977 to 1978. He traveled in various countries and absorbed the nature and culture of those countries. After returning home, he started to execute kinetic sculptures. The same time came repeatedly every day. But it was never the same as the day before. Surely, nature and the person evolve. He thought to try to express this with sculpture.
The wind sends us world information precisely. Matsumoto represents wind through the medium of sculpture often containing a message from nature.
Kaoru has exhibited at Henry Moore Grand Prize Exhibition 1979, where he was awarded the Prize of Excellence. He received the Sydney Water Sculpture Prize at Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi in 2007, and has exhibited at Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi in 2007, 2010 & 2014.
