Yayoi Kusama - Accumulation (1963)

"Kusama’s creations are a direct result of her precarious psychological state, an illness she refers to as ‘obsessional neurosis’. She began having hallucinations as a child and currently lives out of choice in a psychiatric ward in her native country. 

She has said of her work: ‘It arises from a deep, driving compulsion to realize in visible form the repetitive image inside me.’”
