       Yayoi Kusama, Journey through the rape blossoms, 1987, acrylic on canvas

    I try to spotlight different artists every day but I’m very very stuck on Kusama right now, I just love her visual world. Here’s another mesmerizing piece by her (search under “Kusama” on the right sidebar to find other Kusama-related posts on
    Veins carrying blood to peas. Mixing the animal and vegetable worlds. Or a sieve of red as green guts are pushed through.The color contrast isn’t as violent as it could be; this could easily have been some electro/neon eye-punisher. Instead it beckons you closer, invites you to travel along its strange network, walk its red maze-garden paths.
    What do you see?
