YAYOI KUSAMA - PUMPKIN: THE OBSESSION WITH PUMPKINS
In Yayoi Kusama’s art, Pumpkins are one of the most recurring subjects. The artist’s passion for pumpkins was born during her childhood when she would walk through the fields of her grandfather’s farm and find herself admiring the pumpkins. The vegetable struck her for its structural simplicity and she composed her first watercolours with it.
The artist captures not only the grace of the vegetable but also what she describes as their “generous unpretentiousness” and “solid spiritual balance”.
