Knitting for Yayoi


Knitting for Yayoi, 2013, white pencil on paper.

Winner of the 2013 Zinni Douglas Merit Award at the Walker & Hall, Waiheke Art Awards, judged by Mary Louise Brown. This painstakingly large drawing of thousands of teeny tiny white circles took literally weeks to complete, and pays homage to one of my favourite artists, Yayoi Kusama. It also reminded me of knitting, and I loved that you could watch the work grow before your very eyes as you obsessively worked away at it.
