Rest Well Spiderwoman….

June 1, 2010


Artist Louise Bourgeois has died at age 98 today. Always wanted to meet her as she was such an inspiration. Not only her artwork-which included giant looming spiders made of bronze, delicately, sometimes violently sewn sculptures, and double-headed phalluses- but also her absolute persistence.Not until her 70s did she really receive the kind of recognition that she deserved. I liked knowing she was working away here in Brooklyn. We’ll miss you. Holland Cotter wrote a nice piece for the NY Times about Louise, read it here
