Exhibition of Yayoi Kusama work
Giant balloon at the entrance to the exhibitionA couple of weeks ago I went to see the retrospective exhibition of Yayoi Kusama work at Tate Modern in London. I wasn't sure what to expect as (shamefully) I was not familiar with her work. What awaited me is hard to put into words. It was an explosion of colors!
One of my favorite pieces was a painting entitled A Gill (1955). To me it looked like a stormy sea or an old map and strangely the red shapes reminded me of the Hattifatteners in the Moomin books.
Its a great painting to just lose oneself in.

The boat looked like it was frozen it time after a wreckage and was slowly covered by shells.
