Works by Yayoi KusamaJuxtapoz // Sunday, 02 Oct 2011
Allison Miller, painter and professor at UC San Diego, recently showed me a film about Yayoi Kusama, following her around her studio and attempting to get a glimpse into her odd world and unusual artistic practice. Kusama has been producing work for over 50 years and all of it is very strange and very beautiful. Her work constructs a new world that is entirely original and bizarre, creating something magical and surreal. Kusama works with performances, installations, paintings, and drawings that all pull you out of your own reality and into her own realm of the strange.
