Born in 1929, Yayoi Kusama is one of Japans most important contemporary artists and she is still going strong. Kusama is famous for her use of polka dots in her sculptures and installations. She moved to New York in the fifties, corresponded with Georgia O’Keeffe, had a brief affair with Donald Judd and organised hippy happenings with lots of nudity ;-) After returning to Japan in the early seventies, she began writing surrealist novels. In 1977 voluntarily checked herself in mental hospital where she has been living ever since.
In 'Manhattan Suicide Addict’, she states: "A polka-dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colourful, senseless and unknowing. Polka-dots become movement ... Polka dots are a way to infinity.” In 2017, Yayoi Kusama Museum opened in Tokyo.

One of the perils of not having a van is forgetting to pack everything you need - most times we grab what we think we need.
There he was, a lone man determined to disrupt my picture perfect image. Being the good samaritan that I am, I let him have his 2 minutes of fame 😂😂. Btw, have you checked out these gorgeous glass and light installations at the Burj Park? Absolutely mesmerizing isn’t it?

One wall down, one to go! 🧬🔬🦠Not gonna lie, this project has been really challenging for me, but such an incredibly exciting opportunity! I was approached by an old friend to do an installation at the new Google offices in Colorado. Their only request was that it be science themed. I really had no freaking clue what I could do, but then this came to me! Not only is this the biggest project I have ever worked on, I am also really low on flowers & don’t have many options for pressing more this time of year. I had to get really creative with this & I am honestly really pleased with how it’s turning out. It’s been consuming much of my time and more than a few tears have been shed in the process, but damn I am so happy to have this part finished. Now I have to make all the pieces for the other half of the installation which are a totally different design 😬. Eep!
