Louise Bourgeois

Louise Bourgeois

25 December 1911 – 31 May 2010

Bourgeois was a an amazing artists who's work touched on themes of the human body, feminism, loneliness, sexuality, fear, anxiety and so much more. Her work has really moved me and inspired me since I first saw her work at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

She was 98 years old. She completed her most recent work just one week before she died of a heart attack. What a woman!

It was one of my dreams to meet her. I'm so sad that won't happen now, but I will hold her up forever!
