Yayoi Kusama (Picture 1)


Yayoi Kusama, born in Matsumoto, Nagano Prefecture, Japan, graduated from Matsumoto Girls' School in Nagano Prefecture, Japan. She moved to New York City in the United States in 1956 and began to show her avant-garde artistic creations. She currently lives in Tokyo, Japan. She has exhibited with contemporary great artists such as Andy Warhol, Kles Odenberg, and Jasper Jones. When he was less than 10 years old, Yayoi Kusama suffered from neurological hearing and hearing disorders, and often had hallucinations and hallucinations. The world she saw was covered by a huge net, so she kept painting, trying to express her hallucinations with repeated dots, and her mental illness and artistic creation almost accompanied her throughout her life.

In 1955, Yayoi Kusama communicated with the American female painter Georgia O'Keeffe and began to prepare for the United States. In 1956, she moved to the United States, where she spent most of her time creating in New York City, and began to be known as the "Avant-garde Queen." In the 1960s she participated in many anti-war movements. Yayoi Kusama's ten years in the United States coincided with the boom of Pop Art. Years later, when critics reorganized her creative process, Yayoi Kusama was placed in a complex social environment: "It was a hippy era, and Yayoi Kusama soon realized that the country was now What is popular, they protest the Vietnam War, take drugs, chase the mystery of the East, seek refuge from foreign religions, and adore sexual liberation. Many people start to break the norm, and some people become rich and famous. "

Repeating dots are a cure for Yayoi Kusama and the way that Yayoi Kusama communicates with the world. Born in Japan in 1929, Yayoi Kusama is a lonely child. From an early age, she was interested in the dots in the real life perspective. Mirrors, polka dot patterns, biological antennae, and tips are all recurring motifs in Yayoi Kusama's later works. Her fascination with spots originated from a child with neurological hearing impairment. This disease made the world she saw seemingly separated. With a speckled net. So she began to paint these spots, which are like cells, races, molecules, the most basic elements of life, and Yayoi Kusama saw them as signals from the universe and nature. "Earth is just one of millions of dots." She used them to change the inherent sense of form, to deliberately create continuity between things, to create an infinitely extended space, and the audience in it could not be sure. The boundary between the real world and the illusion.

In 1954, Yayoi Kusama expressed the following in his painting "Flowers (DSPS)": "One day I watched the pattern on the red tablecloth and started to look for the same pattern from the ceiling, windows , Walls to all corners of the room, and finally my body, the universe. In the process of searching, I felt worn away, infinite time and the sense of absolute space constantly spinning, I became small and insignificant . In 1966, the work "Love Forever", using small round light bulbs and large mirrors to infinitely reflect the space installation, caused a rather visually psychedelic work, which can be said to be Yayoi Kusama's famous work. Yayoi Kusama can also be regarded as contemporary One of the authors, since she returned to settle in Japan in 1978, has published more than 10 books including autobiography.

The death of her lover has dealt a heavy blow to Yayoi Kusama, and her mental problems have become increasingly serious. In 1973, the second year of Joseph Cornell's death, Yayoi Kusama returned to New York from New York, left the artist and critics, escaped the media, and lived alone in a mental sanatorium, disappearing. In 1993, Yayoi Kusama represented Japan alone at the Venice Biennale, re-emerging in the arena and establishing her position in international art. The polka dot queen, Japanese art queen, topic queen, mental patient, strange mother-in-law and many other tags are not enough to cover Yayoi Kusama's complex and changeable life. This person, who was criticized as the representative of bad taste in Japan with Araki, continued to prove herself with half a century of artistic creation, and witnessed the history of contemporary art with pioneering artists such as Andy Warhol, Yoko Ono.
