About the artwork

In this work by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, numerous black polka dots create biomorphic forms, that span across the canvas. With fewer dots than some of her other pieces, this work has a more relaxed aura, yet Kusama’s methodological placement of these motifs can still be observed. The differing shapes of these biomorphic forms creates a sense of visual dynamism, that imbues the work with a sense of energy despite its monochromatic nature. Kusama is arguably Japan’s most famous artist of the modern era, and her art has been described as containing attributes of feminism, minimalism, abstract expressionism and pop art. // image : 29.5x41.8cm sheet size: 45.5x63cm Etching 1994 edition : 14/50
