Polka Dot Passion

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wq0LXh3sais&hl=en&fs=1] Yayoi Kusama, one of Japan's greatest female artists, works are currently on display at the Gagosian in New York and the gallery in LA. The exhibitions celebrate her 80th birthday and anticipates this forthcoming documentary Kusama: Princess of Polka Dots. The bi-coastal exhibitions feature several new works including Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity (2009). The Gagosian Gallery describes it as

"...a mesmerizing "infinity room" that operates on a system of simple yet ingenious optical devices. In a dark void, a delicate, shimmering mirage unfolds around the viewer, a myriad of gleaming lights that reproduce and reflect endlessly upon each other in golden silence."
