Doodle Tuesday – Louise Bourgeois

4 thoughts on “Doodle Tuesday – Louise Bourgeois”

  1. I am not a spider lover (to put it mildly) but I love her giant spider sculptures. And her sketches are pretty mind-blowing. I can’t help but wonder what she was thinking about as she drew the one that looked like a mother eating her babies? Or is that a reflection on me, somehow? Maybe she’s kissing them and I’m the freak that’s thinking about eating babies? hmmm. Much to think about.

    1. I’m also terrified of spiders, but I always love drawings or other depictions of them for some reason. I think you’re right about the eating babies thing – I’m sure I’ve read or seen stuff about her discussion females eating their young and possibly their partners.
