I don’t know who was more excited, myself or my wee daughter as we headed into London for a day out at the Tate Modern. London has such an energy about it too, the pulse on the pavement adding to my joy and anticipation of visiting such a fantastic place.
I found that I could get a combined ticket for the Yayoi Kusama Exhibition and another artist, Boetti.
I was blown away by Yayoi Kusama, she is truly a fascinating character and brilliant artist. Her exhibition was filled with loads of different rooms all of which were thought-provoking. It certainly challenged me to try to put myself into the art itself – I would have gone through a second time had I the chance. It is certainly worth the visit.
Alighiero Boetti: Game Plan, as I had little idea what to expect had some very pleasant surprises. Firstly that he uses embroidery in quite a lot if his work. He also used biro pens covering big pieces of paper and with very short brush strokes he created a texture which looked like it had been stitched, very clever.
I loved our day out – next stop:
