Quote of Note | Yayoi Kusama


(Photo: Jason Schmidt)

“The original idea for this work dates back to my childhood. I was making paintings in small, medium, and large sizes then, without sleeping at night sometimes. Those paintings, 2 or 3,000 in total, were rapidly sublimated within myself and developed into sculptures. In other words, underlying the mirror room were my early paintings. To create an endless mirror room had been my long-cherished dream.”

-Yayoi Kusama on her mirror room pieces in a 1999 interview for BOMB magazine. The artist’s “Fireflies on the Water” (2002, pictured)–an immersive environment of lights, mirrors, and water–is on view through October 28 at the Whitney Museum in New York.
