“A polka dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the whole energy of the world and our living life, and also the form of the moon which is calm … Polka dots are a way to infinity.” Yayoi Kusama
Following up on some of the mark-making potentials that developed while making Found:Unbound I, I found myself researching polka dots (and what role polka played in the expression). I came across the above quote, which drew me to another artist new-to-me.
There’s a whole string of You Tube videos about Yayoi’s work. They’re well worth watching.
I’ve got some drawing to do.
Hope you’re having a nice Sunday. Or Moonday, I suppose, depending on where you live.
