Looking Back: The Fabric Works by Louise BourgeoisJuxtapoz // Friday, 17 Feb 2012
In 2010, Hauser & WIrth exhibited over seventy of the late Louise Bourgeois fabric drawings alongside four large-scale sculptures. Made from clothing and other domestic effects accumulated through out Bourgeois' lifetime, the drawings utilize the imminent charactersitics of the weathered materials. The works are beautifully simple and painterly in their compositions, mostly abstract at first glance, but noticeably personal and intimate. Timelessly beautiful, the fabric works of Louise Bourgeois are worth looking back upon, even a few years after the fact.
