Catalogue Note

"Soto’s most important contribution could actually be, beyond the material and media he uses, the aesthetic stimulus experienced by facing unexpected constructions of nylon threads and metal rods; overall, the materialization of space and its use as an artistic element, as if it were a canvas, wood or marble."

Alfredo Boulton, in Soto, Kamakura, Museum of Modern Art, 1990, pg. XV
