Yayoi Kusama's Narcissus Garden at Robert Miller Gallery

Yayoi Kusama Nacissus Garden

Japanese sculptress and wildly inventive contemporary artist Yayoi Kusama is currently exhibiting a variation on her large chrome balls sculpture installation known as Narcissus Garden over at Robert Miller Gallery on West 24th Street in Manhattan.

The delightfully reflective spheres are scattered across the floors of each room at the gallery and charm the viewer with their random (and yet not so random) organization.

Pinball, anyone?

The fabulous Jeff Koons, one of our very favorite contemporary pop artists, is the latest in a long line of artists to create an original work for Château Mouton Rothschild, which has commissioned avant-garde artists to design its labels since 1945. In his design, pictured above, Koons works over a Pompeii fresco of The Birth of Venus with a silver line drawing of a ship sailing under a bright sun.

Among the other artists to have created a label for Mouton Rothschild are Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Georges Braque, Juan Miró, Andy Warhol, Francis Bacon and Lucien Freud.
