Ms. Pink Loves Dots
Dots are an extremely simple pattern that you can do some quite complex things with in terms of interiors…
Little circles of varying sizes, it doesn’t get much more basic than that!
But how’s this for a real statement piece? Would you have this in your home? ( perhaps minus the mouth?)
I love the oversized handles on these mugs.
I’m a big fan of these Halftone dot style cushions.
Polka Dots popularity boomed in fifties fashion.
Dots are also popular in various forms of art; from Australian Aboriginal art (whose dot paintings are now internationally recognised as culturally significant) or the contemporary op art dots of Bridget Riley, to halftone dots which were most famously used by Roy Lichtenstein and also across a large range of print graphics in the sixties.
The images below are from the recent Yayoi Kusama exhibition at the Queensland Art Gallery in Australia. Aptly named The Obliteration Room, you can see the blank white space at the start of the exhibition and as it progressed the space was literally covered by dots of varying colours and sizes that visitors were given, to place wherever they wanted, upon entering the room. Gradually ‘obliterating’ the white space with dots.
