Yayoi Kusama - Victoria Miro

After seeing the work of Yayoi Kusama at the Tate show a couple of years ago I became an instant fan. I popped along last week to see her latest exhibition 'Pumpkins' at the Victoria Miro gallery.
Here's what you can expect to see and some of my favourite works.

 Yayoi Kusama, 'Eyes of Mine', 2010

Yayoi Kusama, 'Horse Play in Woodstock, a happening', 1967
From the above work until now, she continues to produce powerful transformative work. Her dedication to her art is truly inspirational. 
Of all the works at the Victoria Miro I have to say the piece above was my favourite.
