Details — Click to read

Well-known for her use of repetitive and accumulative motifs, Yayoi Kusama’s artistic practice spans paintings, sculptures, installations and other artistic fields. While her immersive installation works fascinate audiences around the world, her works on paper reflect equally intriguing sensibilities. In this series of prints made between 2011 and 2012, Kusama repeats motifs of eyes, face profiles and organisms atop backgrounds of bold colours. In contrast with the fine detail in her earlier prints, the improvised expression of free lines as well as the textured surface of the paper used here surprises the viewer. Amidst this, her signature style remains, making all her works instantly recognisable.

The Artist

Yayoi Kusama

Avant-garde Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama works in many different mediums, including sculpture, painting, performance, books, poems and installation. Her impact can be seen in a wide range of creative movements, including minimalism, pop art, feminist and environment art, and she is viewed as one of Japan’s most influential living artists. Although she trained at the Kyoto Municipal School of Arts and Crafts in the traditional Japanese painting style of Nihonga in 1948, she quickly turned her back on these established artistic conventions and developed her own unique abstract, conceptual style. The major motif in her work is polka dots. Suffering hallucinations since she was a child, the polka dots are a representation of this experience and, for Kusama, the sign of infinity.
