Louise Bourgeois died on Monday, at the age of 98. This made me so sad to think of an artist dying that has so profoundly inspired my work. I remember seeing a book of some of her work for the first time in Perkins Library. I went back to that book multiple times throughout college. I loved the genitalia and sex in her work. I remember a picture of her as an old lady, posing with a huge phallus. hilarious.
