Yayoi Kusama - getting excited

Right now I'm at home, on the verge of delving into a good few hours of work that involves reading a book with NO pictures in it....I know, perish the thought. But, this isn't about doing the boring work, this is about what I'm looking forward to and getting excited about that gets me throught the boring work!

This is about Yayoi Kusama and how I'm ridiculously excited about the possibility of seeing her work in real life at the end of this month! I don't know much about her, and I'm not going to pretend I do, what I do know is this - she's Japanese, she's been making art that very much pleases my eyes since the 60s,

She is now in her 80s and is still an active artist. I have looked at pictures of her work a lot but never thought there would be an opportinity to see it in real life!

Yayoi's work is on exhibit at the Tate until June, I am going at the end of the month and will do a proper blog about this awesome lady when I've been to the exhibition.

Ah yes. I've seen some of her massive spot stuff. Not in real life mind. Great stuff!
