Artist Rooms

Louise Bourgeois

Working in a variety of materials and scales, Bourgeois explored the mystery and beauty of human emotions.

The artist's work explores issues such as vulnerability and fear, and she often draws on her own life experience. Despite the deeply personal references, the questions they raise are universal.

In particular, Bourgeois is concerned with ideas of womanhood in all its various guises – including the roles of daughter, wife, mother and lover. Throughout her work, she draws on a vocabulary of recurring motifs; spiders, spirals, double forms and entwined fabric bodies.
