  • Artsy: What Sold at The Armory Show

    Artsy on 11th March 2018

    Omer Tiroche, a London-based dealer, opened a space on Conduit Street three years ago in order to be able to participate in fairs like The Armory Show, which still require galleries to have a permanent, brick-and-mortar location in order to exhibit. He brought a series of collages from 1980 and 1981 by Yayoi Kusama, which feature magazine clippings, many of birds, given to her by her former lover Joseph Cornell. Priced at $300,000, they were grabbing a lot of media attention and a lot of interest from collectors from Asia, South America, and New York, said Tiroche.

    It’s the most wonderful time of the year (for contemporary and modern art junkies)! As winter storm Quinn hammers the Northeast with heavy snow, Manhattan looks like a Victorian snow globe version of a miniature Gotham City. It almost feels like Christmas, but we are in early March and it’s the VIP preview Day for the Armory Show, New York’s premier international art fair, which will be showcasing outstanding 20th and 21st century artworks by both established and emerging artists.  Although tackling the prima donna of U.S. art fairs might seem like a Sisyphean task, I am personally very excited (giddy, complete with the silly smile planted on my face) to attend this binge worthy selection of “the very best” that international Contemporary and Modern art galleries have to offer.

  • Yayoi Kusama collages at Omer Tiroche Gallery
    Perhaps you have savored Yayoi Kusama’s “Infinity Rooms,” waiting hours in line for the pleasure of posing within their mirrors. Perhaps you have enjoyed her “Infinity Net” paintings and their bewitching organic repetition. Well, then it is time to head over to the booth of this London gallery, which has a row of six collages that the Japanese phenom made in 1980 and 1981. They’re small but strong: a central image—an eagle, say—sits at the center of each, ornamented with meticulous lines and a glowing border. They look like cells under a microscope, or celestial bodies. They are superb.

    Mention Yayoi Kusama and among the first things to spring to mind are pumpkins, spots, the colour orange and infinity mirror installations. Collage forms a lesser-known niche of the Japanese artist’s oeuvre, but she produced many over the course of the 1980s and 90s, and thanks to Omer Tiroche Gallery, a selection of pieces from 1980 and 81 will be shown as part of New York’s upcoming Armory Show (and in conjunction with a London exhibition of the same gallery, focusing on Kusama’s small-scale pumpkin paintings).

  • London Calling: This Week: 5 – 11 March

    London Calling on 5th March 2018

    Yayoi Kusama is one of the most important Japanese contemporary artists and her polka dot patterned pumpkins are an instantly recognizable motif of pop art. The troubled artist, a member of the 1960s New York art scene, suffers from hallucinations and OCD and the 3D dots and infinity nets are actually how she experiences the world around her. The repetitive use of the pumpkin motif is usually interpreted as an attempt to control her fears, however Kusama has also accused her former friend Andy Warhol of stealing her idea for his Marilyns! The Omer Tiroche Gallery has created a friendly and playful space to showcase a small but important collection, which is displayed together for the first time in the UK.

  • Yayoi Kusama’s name is synonymous with two things: polka dots and pumpkins.

  • It’s a big month for Yayoi Kusama. The Japanese contemporary artist will be turning 89 in a few weeks and three shows devoted to her work are opening this weekend alone. It has been more than half a century since Kusama left her hometown of Matsumoto, so it’s only fitting that the city’s museum of art has opened a major retrospective called “Yayoi Kusama: All About My Love” to celebrate the institute’s 15th anniversary. Simultaneously “Infinity Mirrors” has opened at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto after a successful run in the US and “Small Pumpkin Paintings” launched at London’s Omer Tiroche Gallery. Kusama’s creations help her to confront the hallucinations she has battled since her early childhood
    (pumpkins features prominently). Her art is made to efface the self and it will let you escape the here and now too.

  • Fabric Magazine: Yayoi Kusama’s New Exhibition

    Avant-garde artist Kusama is best known for her provocative ‘happenings’ and hallucinatory paintings of loops and dots. So this intimate exhibition of small-scale paintings is an unexpected delight. Kusama’s family survived primarily off pumpkin dishes when she was a child – as the visual embodiment of her childhood and present psychological state, they are a form of self-portraiture. Viewed up close, you can see that these paintings are an amalgamation of two motifs she has revisited throughout her career: polka dots and infinity nets. Mesmerising.
