Lynda Benglis

Lynda Benglis, MoMA, 1969, Dayglo pigment and poured latex

Lynda Benglis, EAT MEAT, 1965/1975, aluminum 
The artist that I chose to do this assignment on is names Lynda Benglis. She is very well known artist for her outstanding and innovative paintings That she has done over the years. Her paintings and sculptures are almost broken meaning that they have been “melted” or have come to the ground. This is a very unique trait that she has about her art. One of her main artistic specialties is poured wax paintings. We can see this specialty being used in picture number one, or the first picture. This is what she is mainly known for. She is also known for her wax paintings and sculptures. The first work of art I chose by my artists is the piece called “MoMA”. This piece is very unique in which Lynda shows her favorite style of artwork. This piece represents her style because it is a poured wax paintings meanings she poured is all on the ground until it all dried up. The second piece of artwork that I selected from my artist is the sculpture called “EAT MEAT”. The melted aluminium in this piece is shown to us as sort of a “blob”, leaving the message unknown to the audience. This art piece represents Lynda’s main style because it shows how abstract she it. With the aluminum blob it shows how different each one of her paintings truly is, no one is the same. I mainly picked this artists due to the fact of how unique she sounded when watching the video. She was so different from the other artists mainly because she did whatever came to mind with not set meanings behind it. This led me to pick the artwork that I picked because they both stood out to me the most. One was a more classic piece from her, and the other was a little more challenging to what she usually does. As a result the main thing that I found the most interesting was the fact that she just lays whatever colors on the floor and they always come out absolutely beautiful!

Yayoi Kusama, Fireflies on the Water, 2002, mirrors, plexiglass, lights, water, New York, Japanese

Yayoi Kusama, Sea, 2005, acrylic on canvas, geography unknown, Japanese

Yayoi Kusama was born in Matsumoto, Japan, and she is best known for her infinity installations and her innovative use of polka dots. Influenced by polka dots, repetition became one of her main themes in painting and sculpture. Her works were situated in the Minimalist movement but soon transitioned to Pop Art and Performance Art.

The first work of art I selected is Fireflies on Water. It is an example of Kusama’s famous infinity installations using mirrors, plexiglass, and lights. The room measures about 10 x 12 x 12 feet. However, it looks like the room would stretch into infinity with all the reflections. The water on the ground adds a sense of wholeness to the room, completing the desired view. A small, dock-like viewing platform allows only one person at a time to view the room, enhancing its solitary effect. Ultimately, it gives off a hallucinatory vibrancy of wonder as Kusama attempts to capture an infinite reality. Kusama called her art “medicine,” for both her audience and herself, referencing her time in a mental hospital. “Become part of your environment,” she said.

The second work of art I selected is Sea, and it shows just how talented Kusama is. We clearly see her appreciation for repetition and movement when all the lines make the ocean come to life. In line with the Abstract Expressionism and Minimalist movements, the painting excludes subject matter. Every portion of the canvas is filled with textured and meticulous brushstrokes equally. The colors gain intensity in hue as the viewer looks from top to bottom, demonstrating how the top of the water is closer to the sunlight.

I picked this artist because her works reminded me of a museum I visited with my family. The Museum of Dream Space (MODS) in Las Vegas exhibits digital art designs inspired by Yayoi Kusama. The museum also aims to provide a magical experience, breaking the limits of physical media. Even though Kusama was born in Japan, her artistic revolution has spread to the entire world, just as she wanted.
