With a six decade long career behind her, the famed japanese artist Yayoi Kusama shows no signs of slowing down, presenting a monumental show of new and recent work at David Zwirner gallery in New York. Her distinguishing themes of universal infinity, endlessness, and the cosmic realms are reflected in twenty-seven new large scale paintings, two immersive sculptural rooms, and a video installation, of which the exhibit ‘I who have arrived in heaven’ is comprised, spanning the gallery’s three consecutive locations. Kusama’s amalgamation of pop and minimalist art have manifested as hypnotic architectural interventions within david zwirner gallery, dizzying the visitor in illuminated mazes of sound, light, and color. A room of kusama’s most kaleidoscopic environments to date is filled with inflatable tentacle like forms covered in the artists trademark polka dots, while the artist’s voice can be simultaneously heard reciting a japanese love poem. Her more recent explorations of two-dimensional mediums have been realized through the series of acrylic works, all painted by hand, with representations of vibrant biomorphic shapes and forms personified as animated creatures.
