A little self indulgent, but a great read.,
This review is from: Infinity Net: The Autobiography of Yayoi Kusama (Unilever) (Hardcover)
Most of this book gives such a good insight into the way she makes her work, the reasoning behind it and the way it helped her. As it continues the book does turn into a bit of a list of works and dates, and how well they were received. She seems to skim over any parts of her life where her art wasn't so. This is a shame as the parts about her personal relationships and her mental illness are brilliantly written, but I still couldnt put it down and read it in three hours. There is very little modesty, but in some ways this makes the book seem more honest.
I would of liked a couple more images later in the book when she mentions so many works, I suppose that there are books available on her works alone for that. I am very sorry to have missed her retrospective at the Tate, but after reading Infinity Net I am even more determined to go see her work elsewhere! For anyone interested in her art it's a definite must read!
