    Pre-Lot Text

    My art originates from hallucinations only I can see. I translate the hallucinations and obsessional images that plague me into sculptures and paintings.

    I am an obsessional artist. People may call me otherwise, but I simply let them do as they please. I consider myself a heretic of the artworld. I think only of myself when I make my artwork.

    Yayoi Kusama in an interview with Grady Turner, BOMB magazine, no 66, winter 1999, p.
