Yayoi Kusama, Yellow Trees, 1994. Acrylic on canvas. Forever Museum of Contemporary Art. © Yayoi Kusama. Via Whitneymuseum:
Kusama is obsessive in her mark-making and there are infinite variations in every line of circles. … I do not find logical repeats. Each tendril or stem is too individual. She may have used a compass to set the larger curves (pin-holes evident at points); however even these are not “regular.’ … Kusama has a very obsessive nature, evident in her early infinity net paintings of the late 1950s.
