artist of the week

i'm a little biased on this one considering i worked at the guggenheim last summer while her exhibit was on display, but i think louise bourgeois is one of the most talented female artists i have ever encountered. for goodness sake, the woman is 97 years old and has been creating art for almost her entire life. ever since i saw a film about her called the spider, the mistress, and the tangerine at the film forum in nyc, i have been fascinated with her kind of cryptic manner of speech, her no nonsense attitude, her traumatic, heart wrenching childhood, and how she goes about creating her art.
