Yayoi Kusama: From Here to Infinity

Yayoi Kusama: From Here to Infinity

Eye Yayoi Kusama... Eye (1989, Acrylic on canvas, Signed and dated verso: "1989 Yayoi Kusama"). From the exhibition Yayoi Kusama: From Here to Infinity at Barbara Mathes Gallery. "...Since the mid-1950s, Yayoi Kusama has rigorously explored themes of obsession, accumulation, and repetition through an extensive body of work dominated by a compulsive use of dots, nets and biomorphic shapes. In 1958, Kusama moved from Tokyo to New York where she became acquainted with Joseph Cornell, Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg, Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman. In light of these diverse influences, Kusama's style resists strict categorization and incorporates elements of Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Pop, Minimalism, Feminism, and Performance Art."
