Details — Click to read
Avant-garde Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama was an influential figure in the postwar New York art scene, staging provocative happenings and exhibiting works such as her “Infinity Nets”, hallucinatory paintings of loops and dots (and physical representations of the idea of infinity). Narcissus Garden, an installation of hundreds of mirrored balls, earned Kusama notoriety at the 1966 Venice Biennale, where she attempted to sell the individual spheres to passersby. Kusama counted Donald Judd and Eva Hesse among her close friends and is often considered an influence on Andy Warhol and a precursor to Pop art. Since her return to Japan in the 1970s, Kusama’s work has continued to appeal to the imagination and the senses, including dizzying walk-in installations, public sculptures, and the “Dots Obsessions” paintings.
Condition is excellent.

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.
