We were wrong – there is so much more to her work! Kusama’s obsession with repetitive motifs, and use of vibrant colours mixed together create mind blowing images. Throughout her life she has been experimenting with various media, and textures. She plays with images to create a completely new quality to work already done. One of the memorable examples is ‘Aggregation: One Thousand Boats Show‘.
Kusama marked her space in the modern art with a unique role and double ‘outsider’ status – she is a female Asian artist in the predominantly white, male New York art world. It is very strongly expressed in her ‘Walking Piece’.
There is not to be missed ‘Infinity Mirrored Room – Filled with the Brilliance of Life’ work where viewer gets to participate in Kusama’s imaginary world.
We hope to see more of Kusama who turns 83 in March, and her recent paintings get our hopes even higher.
An inspiring exhibition that will stay with us for a long time!
