About

Yayoi Kusama Set of Two Pumpkins: Yellow and Black / Red and White An iconic, vibrantly colored pop art set - these small Kusama pumpkin sculptures feature the universal polka dot patterns and bold colors for which the artist is perhaps best known. Kusama first used the pumpkin at the 1993 Venice Biennale for the Japanese pavilion and since then it has appeared worldwide in various iterations, to ever rising acclaim and popularity. Painted cast resin 3.94 x 3.35 x 3.35 inches (10 x 8.5 x 8.5 cm). Dimensions apply to each. New in their original boxes; excellent condition Each Kusama copyright stamped on underside Open edition "Named 'the world's most popular artist' in 2015, it's not hard to see why Yayoi Kusama continues to dazzle contemporary art audiences globally. From her signature polka dots—to her mirror-and-light Infinity Rooms, Kusama's multi-dimensional practice of making art elevates the experience of immersion. Kusama's practice is so unique, it often transcends the aesthetics and theories of many late twentieth century movements, including Pop Art and Minimalism. Kusama first honed her punchy cosmic style in New York City in the 1960s. During this period, she staged avant-garde happenings, which eventually thrust her onto the international stage with a series of groundbreaking exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art in the 1980s and the 45th Venice Biennale in 1993. She continues to churn out paintings and installations at inspiring speed, exhibiting internationally in nearly every corner of the globe, and maintains a commanding presence on the primary market and at auction." (source: Phillips) “The polka dot,” the artist wrote in 1978, “has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colorful, senseless and unknowing, polka-dots become movement. . .polka dots are a way to infinity...”
