Louise Bourgeois


“The subject of pain is the business I am in. To give meaning and shape to frustration and suffering. The existence of pain cannot be denied. I propose no remedies or excuses.”


Ms. Bourgeois has died. It's a shame it took so long for her to be "noticed". She was a very interesting woman and artist. This little old lady had guts and an amazing zest for life... Here is a link to a GREAT blog/article about her (originally from the NY Times).
