Artist: Yayoi Kusama

Last Saturday I went to see the Louis Vuitton supported exhibition of Yayoi Kusama at the Tate Britan, London. This is the first large-scale museum retrospective of Kusama's career, seeking to show the full breadth of the artists extraordinary output throughout her lengthy and varied career.

Yayoi Kusama is the most prominent Japanese female artist of our time, now in her 8o's she still continues to produce work at an astonishing rate. The exhibition looks across more than six decades of her work, with some of my favourites being the large installations with mirrored interiors and polka dots and her phalli sculptures representing her philosophy of 'self- obliteration', whereby its the artist's own attempt to surrender herself to her art.

Exhibition is on at Tate Modern, London 
until 5 June 2012
