This necklace celebrates the master of polka dots Yayoi Kusama (born 22 March 1929) Kusama is a Japanese contemporary artist who works primarily in sculpture and installation, but is also painting, performance, film, fashion, poetry, fiction, and other arts. Her work is conceptual and blends feminism, minimalism, surrealism, pop art, and abstract expressionism, and is infused with autobiographical, psychological, and sexual content. She has been acknowledged as one of the most important living artists to come out of Japan.
Dublin born artist Ciarna Pham, who works under the name Kiki Na Art, is the creator of these unique pieces of handcrafted jewellery. The stunning one of a kind pieces are made for the individual and no two pieces are ever the same. To compliment the Desire exhibition at IMMA, Kiki Na Art has produced a collection of unique jewellery and wall pieces based on women artists in the museum collection.
