2019年,草间开始在一组100 x 100 厘米的单色画布上创作,在白色的背景上密集地使用纯黑的颜料。与同一系列的其他画作不同,明亮而生动的色彩消失了。大胆并卷曲的黑色线条和她丰富多样的图案:孔眼、正面脸孔、生物形态、网和点包裹并覆盖着画布。这些新的绘画融合了相对性的概念和正负空间、形象和抽象、宇宙微观和宏观的形式。创作于标志着她的"我的永恒灵魂"系列的第十年,这些作品促使我们重新回顾了观看和走近这个系列的方式。



Ota Fine Arts Shanghai is delighted to present YAYOI KUSAMA: RECENT PAINTINGS, a solo exhibition by Yayoi Kusama featuring 15 monochrome paintings from her My Eternal Soul series and a cloud-based sculpture installation consisting pieces of mirror-finished stainless steel three-dimensional pieces.

In 2019, Kusama began working on a group of 100 x 100 cm monochrome canvases that she painted intensively by applying solid black paint on a white background. Unlike other paintings of the same series, the bright and vibrant colors have disappeared. Bold and curly black lines envelop the canvas together with her wealth of varied motifs: eyelets, frontal faces, biomorphic shapes, nets and dots. These new paintings synthesize contrasting concepts and forms of positive and negative spaces, figuration and abstraction, microscopic and macroscopic views of the universe. Created at the tenth year mark of her My Eternal Soul series, they force a review on the way we look at and approach this series.

In "CLOUDS", stainless steel cloud-like shapes surround the floors of the gallery. They echo, reflect, and complement the lines in her paintings, creating at once an expansive yet immersive atmosphere that allows for floaty imaginations beyond the walls of the gallery. As Yayoi Kusama soldiers on to expand her creative vocabulary, this exhibition is exemplary of her continuous innovation, uncompromising vision and compelling charm to dazzle and captivate the hearts of people all around the world.
