I want to tell you about the inspiring thought that pierces me with anxiety and ease, the insanity of thought is transformed into a conceptual creation of the painting, collages, soft sculptures, performances and installations, sharing the obsession with repetition of patterns, accumulation. How much should you be diligent and were to take all this perseverance?
Yayoi Kusama was born on March 22, 1929, in Matsumoto, Nagano Japan. On the one hand, it is possible that the Japanese way of life, humility and humility, the temper of character, influenced it. On the other hand, in her works, there are traits of feminism, minimalism, surrealism, art, art, and abstract expressionism, her work is filled with psychological and sexual content.
Yaei Kusama from childhood suffered from the suicidal disorder, hallucinations and obsessive thoughts, but how brilliant she is, perhaps her work is a direct reflection of her obsessive thoughts.
At the beginning of her career, she covered the walls, floors, canvases and assistants in drawing peas, her recognizable corporate identity. Infinity networks, large pea fields are a direct projection of her hallucinations.
She studied for a year at the School of Art and Crafts in Kyoto in 1948. In 1957, when she moved to New York, she quickly became popular as an avant-garde leader, making extensive use of her illness and Japanese mystique.
Kusama actively worked, created illustrations, collages, a mirror room, creating the illusion of an infinite surreal field of objects.
November 12, 2008, at Christie’s auction her work was sold for $ 5.1 million, a record for the artist’s living woman.
She is ingenious and inventive. At the moment she lives in a psychiatric clinic and has been working since the mid-1970s, her studio is next to the hospital.
