上海大田秀则画廊荣幸地呈献草间弥生的个展"我对爱的憧憬全部从我内心出发",本次展览将主要展出34幅来自其"我永恒的灵魂"系列的作品,一座窥探式镜屋和多座软雕塑。作为一位国际知名的艺术家,草间弥生的创作至今始终充满了活力、富有革新精神并跨越多学科,持续鼓舞与吸引着全世界人们的心。

2009年,草间开始创作她21世纪作品中的代表性系列"我永恒的灵魂" 。这个系列草间起初只计划创作大概100幅左右,但是至今为止已经创作超过了550幅,而这个数字直至今日仍在增长。当这些作品依次挂在一起时,这些作品给予观者们去一窥草间充满了生机勃勃且不断重复的形式,颜色与动态的世界的机会。生物形态、草间称之为漫画的正面脸孔、孔眼、侧面的脸孔、花朵、阴茎形状、南瓜、网和点在每张画布上蔓延伸展。时而严肃时而滑稽幽默,这些作品在超现实与具象之间坐落。他们是艺术家的标志性主题的融合,是她对新的主题无边际的探索,也是她一生的精彩叙述。

伴随着画作展出的是不同高度和尺寸的软雕塑,他们呼应并反映了她绘画中的形状,线条和颜色,使他们以三维的形式生动起来。

痴迷于无限空间的概念,草间在她的无限镜屋中重新创造了那令人着迷的完美。在本次展览中,观众从填满镜子的六边形房间"我想用自己的眼睛去看见一颗心"的小窗窥视进去时将会感受到一种被淹没般消弭于其中的体验。小灯泡随着颜色的变化而忽明忽暗,并通过反射而繁殖倍增,当空间和光线无限地向各个方向扩展时,给予观众的是一种如同擦除的瞬间。

草间弥生的创作在全球范围内备受欢迎:她举办过不计其数于世界各地的博物馆巡回的个人展览。在短短的6年时间里,草间在全球27个城市举办了6场巡回展览。2011年,她的大型回顾展在马德里索菲亚国家当代美术馆 (西班牙)、蓬皮杜艺术中心 (法国)、泰特现代艺术馆 (英国) 和惠特尼美术馆 (美国) 举行。在接下来的几年里,她的拉美回顾展一直持续到2014年,足迹遍及阿根廷、巴西和墨西哥。在2013年时她超过100件的近作以巡展的形式从韩国到中国大陆和台湾继续拓展亚洲市场。2015这一年标志着她打破参观人数记录的在丹麦、挪威、瑞典和芬兰举行的斯堪的纳维亚巡回展的开始。

2017年,她的北美之旅从华盛顿的赫希洪博物馆和雕塑园(华盛顿)起始,将在2019这一年中前往西雅图艺术博物馆(西雅图)、洛杉矶布洛德美术馆(洛杉矶)、安大略艺术馆(多伦多)、克利夫兰美术馆(俄亥俄) 和亚特兰大高等博物馆(亚特兰大)。与此同时,她最大的个展"草间弥生:我永恒的灵魂"在国立新美术馆(东京)举行。

近期,她的回顾展"草间弥生:生活是彩虹之心"在新加坡国家美术馆举行,并前往澳大利亚布里斯班的昆士兰艺术画廊 (QAGOMA)和印尼雅加达现当代艺术博物馆。草间弥生在全球的广泛人气表明了其在国际艺术史上持续增长的影响力与在国际艺术史上稳固的地位。
画面中大量的留白空间是艾珠作品的特征,完美的平衡在轻柔的灰色与米色之间创造出迷人的和谐与颜色多变的形状与形式,这种简约而独特的画风使艾珠·克里丝汀在印尼与东南亚的同龄人之中脱颖而出。上海大田秀则画廊希望通过展览"黑面",观众们可以感受到艾珠独特的绘画风格与表现我们所生活的世界中她或大或小的遭遇时革新的手法
Ota Fine Arts Shanghai is delighted to present "THE LONGING FOR MY LOVE ALL BEGAN FROM MY HEART", a solo exhibition by Yayoi Kusama featuring 34 paintings from her 'My Eternal Soul' series, a peep-in Infinity Mirror Room and several soft sculptures. As an internationally-acclaimed artist, Kusama's practice remains vigorous, innovative and multi-disciplinary to date, and she continues to inspire and captivate the hearts of people all around the world.

In 2009, Kusama began her 'My Eternal Soul' painting series that characterizes her work of the 21st century. She had initially planned to create around 100 paintings but have since went on to paint over 550 paintings, with the number still increasing today. When hung together in sequence, these paintings offer viewers a snippet into Kusama's vibrant and repetitive world of form, color and movement. Biomorphic shapes, frontal faces that Kusama refers to as 'Manga', eyelets, faces in profile, flowers, phallic shapes, pumpkins, nets and dots are sprawled across each canvas. Occasionally serious yet clownish and humorous at times, these paintings lie between the surreal and the figurative. They are an amalgamation of the artist's signature motifs, her boundless explorations of new motifs, and a blossoming narrative of her life's work.

Accompanying the paintings are soft sculptures of varying height and dimensions. They echo and reflect the shapes, lines and colors in her paintings, bringing them to life in three-dimensional forms.

Obsessed with the notion of infinite space, Kusama re-creates that to fascinating perfection in her Infinity Mirror Rooms. In this exhibition, viewers experience an obliterative encounter as they peer into the small windows of the mirrored hexagon chamber "I WANT TO SEE A HEART WITH MY OWN EYES". Small light bulbs flicker on and off as they change in color and are multiplied through reflection, moments of erasure are experienced as space and light expands infinitely in all directions.

Kusama's creations are well-received globally: she has had numerous solo exhibitions which have remarkably toured museums internationally. In a short span of 6 years, Kusama has held 6 touring exhibitions over 27 cities all around the world. In 2011, her large retrospective was held at the prestigious Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia (Spain), Centre Pompidou (France), Tate Modern (UK) and Whitney Museum (USA). In the following year, her Latin America retrospective tour travelled to Argentina, Brazil and Mexico through 2014. She continued to extend her reach to Asia with a touring exhibition in 2013 with over 100 recent works, travelling from South Korea to China and Taiwan. 2015 marked the beginning of her Scandinavian tour exhibition which took place in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland with record-breaking visitor numbers.

In 2017, her North American tour began at Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (Washington) and travelled to Seattle Art Museum (Seattle), The Broad (Los Angeles), Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto), Cleveland Museum of Art (Ohio) and High Museum (Atlanta) through 2019. During the same period, her largest solo exhibition "YAYOI KUSAMA: My Eternal Soul" was held at The National Arts Center (Tokyo).

Most recently, her retrospective exhibition, "YAYOI KUSAMA: Life is the Heart of a Rainbow" was held at National Gallery Singapore and travelled to Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), Brisbane, Australia and Museum MACAN, Jakarta, Indonesia. Yayoi Kusama's widespread popularity across the globe points to her increasing influence and solidified place in international art history.
