Louise Bourgeois

I love Louise Borgeois' plain naive drawings. I've been trying to work out what the attraction to her simple line work is. I think it relates to my love of tables and diagrams and graphs. The piece of my fathers artwork that I decided to hang in our hallway is actually a drawing of the floor-plan of one of my sisters' homes. Looking at these I feel that my recent work has been much too fussy it makes me want to really simplify what I'm doing and have much cleaner lines.

I also love some of her textile pieces. Not so much those that look like huge fabric dolls. But I do love the book hours of the day and the idea that everyday fabrics tell the story of someone's life.

This piece Cell VII is another textile piece that I just had to post. The items are illuminated or lit like lamps or lanterns and there is something about a piece of artwork that does that which always appeals to me. I wonder if it's something to do with my fear of the dark as a child....

She's a bit of a heroin or role model for me.....she's 97 and still producing artwork every day.....
