We also briefly visited the rest of Queensland Art Gallery and the Queensland Museum and other places on the same day – so I hope to add those photos later.

Look Now, See Forever – Yayoi Kusama, GoMA

‘Look Now, See Forever’ is a “major solo exhibition by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama” at Queensland Art Gallery / Gallery of Modern Art.

Quite stunning.

I hope you get the sense of ‘chaos’ from this photo – complete with the lens flare from the low, bright lighting – that’s the mood I was trying to capture.  Which is a nice contrast to this next one:

Drawing room
Rainbow connection

I like how people are a feature in most of these pics, but not the main feature – just the style which I like.

These photos are all taken at GoMA, and you can see my other related posts GoMA turns 5 and Cloisonné by following those links.

I’ll finish with one of my favourite things – silhouettes:
