look who's been visiting Wellington...

The City Art gallery in Wellington is showing the work of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. This I discovered when crossing the civic square and coming across the large Gallery building covered in spots.
Go to the artists website for a look at her extraordinary life's work. The images featuring yellow and black were part of the touring exhibition which I got to see. The image of the artist with horse comes from a happening staged near New York going back to her early career. her website is well worth a look if you find this artist' story compelling as I do. 
One of the rooms was filled with large drawings in black on white. This was a fascinating body of work I should like to have posted here as well.
