Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama inspires the "Dot" ring / by Francesca Grima

I first saw Yayoi Kusama's artwork at the Victoria Miro Gallery in 2016 and was intrigued by her obsession with repetition and infinity.  A great example of this is Kusama's "All the Eternal Love I have for the Pumpkins", a mirrored room full of acrylic dotted yellow pumpkins with LED lights which creates the illusion of infinity. 

Wishing to pay homage to an artist I admire, I chose a circular white agate ring as my canvas.  The stone was carved to allow the gold dots to be flush with the white agate and follow the form of the ring to create the illusion of dots floating in a white infinity pool.
