Louise Bourgeois was not only one of the world’s leading artists, she was also one of the most versatile. Bourgeois’ creative universe spans poetic drawings and prints, room size installations and sculptures in materials ranging from latex to marble. Through the act of creating, Louise Bourgeois was able to give her fears a physical form in order to exorcise them. The art kept madness at an arm’s length distance, to quote the artist herself:”Art is a guaranty of sanity”. Memory, sexuality, love and abandonment are the core of her complex body of work. Louise Buorgeois passed away in 2010.
