Art I’ve Seen: Yayoi Kusama

Considering how much I love art, I really ought to be more proactive when it comes to visiting galleries and exhibitions. However, I only seem to end up going when a friend has found an awesome one for us to attend. Being self-employed (and therefore glued to my desk on most days), I end up satisfying my avidity for art via the wonderful internet. Glossing over how embarrassing and shameful that is, I want to start a series for my blog called 'Art I've Seen', to share the art I've actually ventured out of the house to see. The last exhibition I visited was 'Pumpkins' by Yayoi Kusama at Victoria Miro in September. It's no secret that I adore abstract and patterned artwork so her meticulous and laborious attention to detail in her art really fascinates me. My hasty instagram photos really do not do her work much justice. You can browse my instagram account for exhibitions that I have previously visited; including artists such as Kara Walker and Kehinde Wiley, and stay tuned for more random blog posts in the future.
