Queen of the Scream

Back Cover:

Yoko Ono’s enchanting philosophy and uplifting positivity are irresistible. She breaks down the boundaries between art and life. No other artist cares about us so much. Yoko shows us the truth – with sincerity, grace and humor. She enlightens us to our own superpowers.

If you have been misinformed, you will learn the truth. We visit Yoko’s inner and outer worlds. You will see the wind and hear the silence. Her meanings and intent will come to light. You will see negative space in a positive way, and will be touched by her wit and wisdom, her genius and whimsy.

Yoko’s work is unfinished – to be completed in your mind. Her art is on the ceiling, on the floor and in the sky. You can step on it, burn it, mend it, cut a hole and let the evening light go through. It is invisible – a wind, a whisper, a scream. It is imagining one thousand suns rising, a billion universes, stealing moonlight on the water, a goldfish swimming across the sky… Her music and films are an extension of her art.

“I have always believed in unfinished work.

I got that from Schubert, you know, the ‘Unfinished Symphony.'”

– Yoko, Twitter

Yoko’s eternal partnership with John Lennon is also unfinished. Their work towards peace includes all of us. We also explore their incredible love story.

“… A hundred years from now

it’s Yoko Ono the world is going to remember,

not John Lennon or The Beatles.”

– Charlotte Moorman, Performance Artist, 1989

Her incredible body of work expresses all the joys and suffering of an extraordinary lifetime.

“I want my epitaph to be,

“Here is a woman who loved life, and still does.”

– Yoko, Twitter

My Yoko Ono art collection:

Dreams, skies, smiles, love and wishes.

I breathe and dance every day.

I listen to the snow, see the wind, count the clouds and imagine peace.

What do you think my collection is worth?

I think it’s priceless!

– Madeline Bocaro
