Nearing artist Yayoi Kusama’s 95th birthday, we look at some of her early works from the 1950’s – 60’s, the “Infinity Nets” series. With their simple color palettes and repetitive pattern, they seem to go on forever – into infinity! A part of the artist’s meditative practice, the act of creating them was a way to focus and calm the mind. An important foundation of her practice and future body of work, this series has always been one of Claire’s favorites.

Zach and Claire catch up between episodes to celebrate 2,600 downloads of the new podcast (thank you, all!) along with a little chat about travel plans to see the upcoming Venice Biennale art exhibition and a good, old-fashioned rant from Claire about the plight of art education.

In episode 2, Zach and Claire take a look at one of Zach's favorite pieces - Louise Bourgeois’ sculpture Maman (1999). At over 30 feet tall and 33 feet wide, the work is massive and, as we learn, is an ode to the artist’s mother.

In episode 1, Claire and Zach look at "Europe After The Rain II" by Max Ernst, painted between 1940 - 1942. One of Claire's favorite pieces, Ernst's surrealist masterpiece uses color and technique to express personal and collective tragedy as the people of Europe suffer through two major wars.
