This artwork is absolutely amazing. It LOOKS like its an installation of crushed foil front on, but is actually a woven canvas. You can see the intricate work in the following two images.

Do you see yourself as the world sees you? Most of us have a different idea of ourselves compared to what our peers and family see us as. Most of us don’t even realise it, I don’t think. Which is why it is always interesting when an artist chooses to do a portrait of themselves.
Yayoi Kusama, an artist who could be said to live in a kaleidoscopic world of schizophrenic colours, did a self portrait in black and white. I am not an art critic. But perhaps it is a metaphor for truth as often been described as black and white, and she believes that she is being honest in her representation of self to the world. In a painting not distracted by colour, we begin to read more of the lines, patterns and shading used to construct her face and background.
Also decided to include an image of Anish Kapoor jewellery collaboration with Bulgari. Its so beautiful. I saw some other jewellery of his at the art fair yesterday, but didn’t manage to take good photographs of it.
Art HK 11 is a an international art fair where galleries from all over the world gather to showcase their best and most popular works. Below is an art work by Anish Kapoor – a round domed dish of mirrors that shows your reflection when you stand at a specific spot relative to the dish. Very fun to play with!! 🙂
