This 2023 KANEKO exhibition featured new sculptures within a Surls retrospective’s context. A profound and unique sensibility to natural forms is evident in Surls’ work, and his relationship to the environment undergirds his creative process.

James Surls (b.1943) received the 2020 Lifetime Achievement Award in Sculpture from The International Sculpture Center in recognition of an extraordinary career encompassing printmaking, drawing, and writing poetry. Acknowledged in the US as one of the most preeminent sculptors of his generation, Surls’ body of work has achieved international acclaim.
