Yayoi Kusama is obsessed with dots and has been using them since her role as an avant-garde artist in 1960s counterculture. And why not? Dots are fun, dots are fast, dots are universal. They can be rounded or spherical, they can rise above a surface or remain flat. Anyone can start with a dot, diverge to a pattern, and end with a painting or assemblage. The trick is repetition — of shape, sizes, colors, and patterns.
