not done, but I highly recommend this if you want to get inspired

it's amazing how someone who can express herself so amazingly in visual arts can also have the capacity to write some amazing insights



however the same concepts are discussed over and over and over again



an obsession with her childhood - almost as if none of her grown up years had any influence on her art
Jennifer
Louise Bourgeois has been able to look at her life at a distance which I find to be the hardest things a person can do. She understands people, events, she is able to analyze situations, her personal life and challenge belief systems.

I am not going to even attempt to review this book because I would end up sounding like a fawning idiot with daddy issues and a penchant for older lady artists.

Seriously.
Karen
Usually I love diaries and letters. This was all way way too abstract. No blood. No juice. Just complicated thoughts about the relations of forms.
Sandra
I'm in adoration. I wonder if Ms. Bourgeois is in need of an adopted daughter?
