yayoi kusama on loving your art

I’m a big fan of love, and being in love, but one of my all-time fave quotes is about pouring yourself into your art rather than someone else. The gorgeous Lula Magazine asked avant-garde artist Yayoi Kusama if she’d ever been in love. This was her reply:

Looking back on some 40 years, I realize that I have been totally occupied with making my artworks that I simply did not have time to be in love. I am in love with my works.

Here’s another good quote of hers from elsewhere:

I fight pain, anxiety, and fear every day, and the only method I have found that relieves my illness is to keep creating art.

Wise lady. ❤
