R.I.P Louise Bourgeois

The amazingly talented Louise Borgeois has died aged 98. What an inspirational female figure in art. I just saw her pieces in the Biennale at the MCA on Sunday.

They were beautiful sculptures cast from clothes that looked like they were once strewn across a room - impossibly, she made them stand up, making them resemble ghost-like figures.
I just love her cheeky smile in this image by Robert Mapplethorpe, where she's holding a giant...

  1. RIP indeed. Rest In Perpetual Party Mode Louise. For of course she has always rocked.

    The rest of us can only hope to continue living such an art-filled life for so long.
