Yayoi Kusama creates amorphous sculptures in bright primary colours covered in dots. They are the woozy creations of an obsessive compulsive, who tries to relieve her mental suffering through art. Born in Matsumoto city in 1929, into a traditional Japanese family, Kusama had a difficult childhood. She suffered from frightening hallucinations and the experiences found their way into her work in soft protrusions obliterated in black spots.
There's something about the city that worms it's way into your heart. Whether you've been there all your life or two months, if you've made the city your home, she has given you a piece of herself to resound within you, forever. - K. E. Fitzgerald
