In?The Art of the Flame-Out, Carl Swanson writes about visionary Japanese artist?Yayoi Kusama’;s return to the New York Art scene after 40 years in a mental-hospital exile.

But whatever you make of her retreat into a psych ward, her mantra was always “self-obliteration”—to lose herself in the work, or to the work, to save herself. “I fight pain, anxietyzip code pillows wholesale, and fear every day, and the only method I have found that relieves my illness is to keep creating art,” she wrote in her autobiography.?Kusama calls her work “art-medicine”—for both herself and the rest of us. “I wanted to start a revolution, using art to build the sort of society I myself envisioned.”

The concept of art-medicine is a powerful one. For us ART = MAKING = CREATIVITY ?and, no matter what form it takes, it is a powerful medicine. When the shit is hitting the fan, there is that: creating something, anyway, despite all that’;s difficult and painful.

It made us think of our friend and frequent contributor Susan Dworski engaging her family carving eraser stamps while camped in her studio after their house burned down…;

and of?Sprinting Towards the End, a recent New York Times Op-Ed about the new phenomenon of writers, most notably Christopher Hitchens and Roger Ebert, ?writing “;through”;, inspite of, and about their terminal cancers. Words transform. The power to create antidotes loss: something comes from nothing.

…;So, Kusama’;s obsessive art of the polka-dot medicine transformed our view:

?…;a polka-dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colorful, senseless and unknowing. Polka-dots become movement…; Polka dots are a way to infinity.

It was SHE that created the?interactive installation we posted a while back: ?a totally white room as a palette for visiting children to embellish as they pleased with colored dot stickers. The results of her brilliant exercise in spontaneous design stunning transformation of the white room…

To help celebrate the beginning of summer and my sister’s upcoming birthday, I wanted to make a summer seashell wall hanging. I wanted to experiment with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists in different mixed media applications! I love how Glimmer Mists mix with different mixed media mediums such as gesso, crackle paste and canvas. I was going for a blended ombre look and I love the results from using the Glimmer Mists. Some seashells and sisal grass with glass beads add to the beach look! Easy to make and it will be a fantastic birthday gift for my sister! Enjoy!
