Yayoi Kusama - I’m Here But Nothing (2000-11)
I was literally skimming through some of Yayoi Kusama’s work this morning, and so seeing this on my dash, I was like, “This looks like those Kusama pieces I was looking at,” and I scroll down, and lo and behold it was her!
(We’re discussing underrated/undervalued artists, and I pretty much brought up that WoC were to be more likely to be less recognised, so she was one of the ones I was looking into because she HAS reached a certain status in the art world)
Oh my goood.
It’s caring that is hurting me the most right now. So I can no longer afford to care. If I keep on like this it will tear me apart. I’m not doing this to hurt anyone. I am doing this to protect myself. In the end, I have to live with myself, if that means I can find peace and happiness in being cold and uncaring, so be it. I just want to be happy again, like I use to be.
When “we” becomes “I” and “us” becomes “me”
This is truly the most heartbreaking thing.
R.I.P to that boy I use to know.
