… AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW

Net stroll: 10th of January 2012, Yayoi Kusama (Japan)

Do you need to warm up on a cold winter day?

There is a blinding snowstorm and boundless blackness outside. I seriously need shades in my existence on such a day. So I start my daily net stroll searching the queen of colors — the queen of dots; Yayoi Kusama.

Yayoi Kusama was born in Matsumoto City, Japan in 1929. She studied Nihonga painting, a rigorous formal style developed during the Meiji period. She was attracted by the experimental promise of the postwar international art scene and ended up moving to the center of the universe — New York City — in 1958. In the early 1970’s Kusama returned to Japan, where she began writing shockingly visceral and surrealistic novels, short stories, and poetry, including The Hustler’s Grotto of Christopher Street (1983) and Violet Obsession (1998).

Kusama — which will turn 83 this year — is not retiring at all. Her countles fans can see a major show by the conceptional artist at Tate Modern in London, from 9th of February until 5th of June 2012.

I’m ending this short-time amusement with lyrics from the Rolling Stones song, She′s a rainbow;

She comes in colors everywhere;
She combs her hair
She’s like a rainbow
Coming colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

— (Jagger/Richards)
