untitled




These are fabric works made by French artist Louise Bourgeois. I think they are beautiful. They remind me of spider webs and umbrellas. Louise was known as "Spiderwoman" because of the giant bronze spider sculptures she made. I was lucky to see one in New York many years ago.
Apparently you can visit her townhouse - which has been preserved just as she left it - in Chelsea, New York.

The images are from the book Louise Bourgeois: the fabric works by Germano Celant. 

Further images of her work here.

Reading: The first bad man: a novel by Miranda July
