Repitition and Reflection

"Narcissus Garden" Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane. April 2008. Ajr
I could have spent a whole lot more time photographing this huge and stunning work – “Narcissus Garden” – by Japanese avant garde artist, Yayoi Kusama (b.1929-) at Brisbane’s Queensland Art Gallery but I was already sprawled out across the floor getting these shots and the gallery 'watchdogs' were beginning to look fidgety. This collection of floating stainless steel balls (and yes, you could touch) first appeared in the Venice Biennale in 1966. They reflect Kusama’s ongoing fascination with repetition, pattern and accumulation – and spots.
