Yayoi Kusama

The Obliteration Room by Yayoi Kusama at GoMA in Brisbane ...
 The obliteration room 2011 

During Kusama’s interviews, she is always concentrated and, without doubt, putting paint all over a canvas. From a young age, she chased her dream from Japan to New york. Over decades she has been stretching what art can be, from paintings, design, performative happenings, sculpture, installation all cohesive with the same vocabulary. She reinvents herself with new technology as they emerge and materials.
As an artist, she mentioned that she deeply thinks about how one should live as she was born as a human being in this world. Her works are direct and easy to understand but, at the same time, emotionally touching.

I deeply admire her commitment to be an artist, although her work may not be exactly relevant to my art practice. Her attitude is what I should learn.
