louise bourgeois


Just read the news that Paris-born modern artist Louise Bourgeois passed away. I was not familiar with her work until last year when we “mini-mooned” in DC. We made a trip to the Hirshhorn in search of a certain Pollock painting, but instead discovered Bourgeois’ work. As you can tell from the photo, I get major heeby jeebies over spiders….so this particular art installment was uncomfortable for me. However, it was fascinating to learn of her legacy…highly emotional sculptures mostly exploring women’s deepest feelings.  I love her message…”Tell your own story, and you will be interesting. Don’t get the green disease of envy. Don’t be fooled by success and money. Don’t let anything come between you and your work.”

-Louise Bourgeois 1911-2010
