Today the post is dedicated to this endowed and mystical women in the art industry YAYOI KUSAMA. Kusama reigns as one of the most unique and famous contemporary female artists, operating from her self-imposed home in a mental hospital.
Yayoi Kusama’s life is a poignant testament to the healing power of art as well as a study in human resilience. Plagued by mental illness as a child, and thoroughly abused by a callous mother, the young artist persevered by using her hallucinations and personal obsessions as fodder for prolific artistic output in various disciplines. This has informed a lifelong commitment to creativity at all costs despite the artist’s birth into a traditional, female-effacing Japanese culture and her career’s coming of age in the male dominated New York art scene.
When Kusama began to see hallucinations as a child, her way of coping with the bizarre phenomena was to paint what she saw. She says that art became her way to express her mental disease. This most notably is seen in her Infinity Net paintings based on repetitive patterns and her installations in which she creates elaborate environments overrun with polka dots or tiny points of light.
In much the same fashion as Kusama uses art to process hallucinations, she also uses her work to confront personal phobias, especially a fear of sex stemming from a witnessing of her father’s womanizing. This reveals itself through her “compulsion” soft sculptures and furniture pieces covered in myriad phallic forms.
Her familiarity with fighting for her life, and her compassion for others involved in causes against injustice, led Kusama to briefly associate with many subcultural movements of her time such as the hippie culture of the 1960s and the feminist movement.
For Kusama, art-making became an essential survival mechanism. It was her sole tool for making sense of a world in which she dwelt on the periphery of normative experience, and as a result became the very thing that allowed her to assimilate successfully into society.
Most renowned work of this artist is vividly known by Arts & Fashion scholars. lets discuss few of those.
The watercolour depicts a singular biomorphic form with subtle dots in the centre floating in a seemingly black abyss. The form is reminiscent of female genitalia with red spikes surrounding it.
The bluish-grey underlay is almost completely obscured by small, white semi-circles, which consume the entire canvas and only allow the gray underlay to be visible in the form of tiny dots.
The work consists of a single abandoned armchair painted white and completely covered with soft, stuffed phallic protrusions, while fringe encircles the base of the sculpture.
In this piece, we see the artist splayed naked on one of her famous soft sculpture furniture pieces laden with phallic accumulations and surrounded with macaroni pasta which forms her familiar, patterns of repetition
Narcissus Garden was Kusama’s first successful experimentation with Performance art. Although officially not invited to represent Japan at the 33rd Venice Biennale nor given permission to participate by Biennale officials, Kusama nevertheless placed 1,500 plastic silver globes on the lawn near the Italian Pavilion. As in the original Greek myth in which Narcissus’s admiration for his own reflection eventually causes him to drown, the viewer is forced to confront their own vanity when looking at their distorted reflection on the surface of the balls.
Her first Anatomic Explosion took place on October 15th, 1968 opposite the New York Stock Exchange. The work featured nude performers dancing to the rhythm of bongo drums while Kusama, who called herself ‘Priestess’, painted blue dots on their naked bodies and presided over the event. The performance was in opposition of the Vietnam War and was prefaced by a press release that stated,
pumpkin is one of Kusama’s first forays into outdoor sculpture. Made specifically for the Benesse Art Site on Naoshima Island in Japan, the giant, yellow pumpkin sculpture is painted with rows of black dots fanning out from large to small around the gourd. The pumpkin’s bulbous, organic form and grand scale gives the work a cartoonish appearance, highlighting how strange the natural world appears in modern culture.
I have been a hardcore fan & totally smitten by coldplay music since 2007, never in my wildest dream i thought Coldplay would ever come to India. The day Global citizen India announced about the British brand Coldplay that they were actually coming to perform all I could think is how perfect i have to dress up for this gig!
First thing that i did was order the perfect shoes that i had seen the other day on koovs.com these shoes have led lights on their sole and it glows in 5 different colors, can anything get cooler then this? so ordered those. Here how it looks and it comes with a cute charger too.
Trust me when i say this hundreds of heads turned when i had put on these glowing shoes in the concert. Led shoes according to me is the must have for people who likes to attend concert it gives out dance vibes and sometimes you can even match it to your outfit color.Enough about the shoes and lets talk about the rest of my ensemble.
Chris Martin and the band won our hearts by their performance. At first we were in the impression of them playing for very few time, but these boys were on fire for more then an hour. They made everyone happy by literally singing all their most loved and epic songs.
Need i say more?
P.S Just wish band & Artist like Maroon 5, Rihanna could make their way to India too:D
As always my reviews for products are genuine and it doesn’t depends on our collaborations with other brands:)
So I had walked in sephora at palladium mall yesterday, on a mid week shopping spree. Cosmetic shopping needs a lot of investment not only money wise but even time wise although finally its always worth it if you get the right product which will end of the day make you feel more beautiful.
You won’t even find a single female on this planet who uses just one brand for all the cosmetic products, thats because every brand has their own speciality product and secondly it majorly depends on how your skin reacts to a specific product too.
So as my classic needs, i picked up a few eye shadow shades from make-up forever and continued strolling and there i spotted Benefit cosmetic counter. Honestly i haven’t tried benefit product before just had heard a lot of it. So finally i decided to give this cosmetic brand a shot. You won’t believe what happened next!
As soon as i came to the benefit counter, the packaging of the product the colour, the quirky names and the whole presentation brightened my tired face and i just couldn’t wait to try the products. Divya, the makeup consultant guided me through the products.
She started with the base products then eyes and then the highlighters. the only thought that came across my mind was why the hell i wasn’t introduced to this products before. I fell in love the out put of each and every product of benefit was mind-blowing. The best part was that the whole collection was very compact which at last shoots down the confusions to choose from the wide range of the product and all of them served the ultimate need for skin care and makeup.
But for the start i bought the few eye makeup essentials namely brownzings, they’re Real & highbrow glow. Cant wait to share what all i have to say for these products.
Trust me we know you put a lot of effort on your make-up and if you forget to do the same justice to your eye brows then it just doesn’t even look close to perfect. Your eyebrow when done properly can give your face an amazing look which is both sharp and sexy. I have always been using closer to black shade on eyebrows of different brand and never had been satisfied with either my eyebrow pencil or the shade.
So going back to brownzings Kit, it contains pigmented wax for shaping, natural-shaded powder for setting, discreet tweezers, hard angle brush and blending brush. Only once Divya did my eyes using Benefit eyebrow kit and it changed ! it really did! beautiful change and looked oh so natural. I am in love with browzing kit.
benefit’s beyond mascara hands down, is one of the best mascara i have ever tried. The best part of it is the same mascara can be used to apply on your eye lashes for the day look and the same can be used for heavy club night look just depends on the number of stokes. I literally didn’t feel the need to put on an eyelash at all coz it made my lashes look so filled and perfect. You guys really really need to gets your hands on this beast.
I never knew this baby can make such a difference in the eye makeup. highbrow glow of benefit basically is used as a liner below the eyebrows gives a very little tone of sheen but closer to cream colour and gives a better impact to the eyes as the eyeshadow becomes more visible and sharp. This is also something i would always secure in my makeup essential kit.
So these were the pretty benefits of Benefits. See ya xo
