<Kusama Yayoi's key words in artworks>
Her drawing in recent years has been added primeval, instinctual images on her pre-existing works.
"I was not trying to be an artist. I just wanted to pull white circles looked like millets that endlessly multiplying up the wall to the sketchbook and see what it is. One day, I tried stitch that on my body, then my soul ,which had come close to be stolen to a ghost, finally lied on the sketchbook, and took a nap for a while."
Yayoi was suffered by regular compulsive disorder, repetition of an extremely tiny gesture. Multiplying and monotony drawing, for example, drawing endless dots or arranging golden commas on the dark background is her peculiarity. She uses compulsive disorder as an unconsciousness method of art, so she faces up to hallucinosis. That's why she is distinguished to other schizophrenias. In other words, she converts madness to creation.
▶ Dot patterns
While Yayoi had been hallucinated, the dot patterns were appeared on her eyes. Finally, it went to be seemed dot patterns were printed on every stuff that surrounded her.
She looked the sun which symbolizes male's energy and the moon which symbolizes the delivery principle of female.
