Louise Bourgeois

Louise Bourgeois Cell VII seen here

J.Morgan Puett Seen here

I'm still thinking about J.Morgan Puett, and how much some of her garment installations remind me of Louise Bourgeois' Cells. They were made in similar time frames too - during the 1990's. I first saw Louise Bourgeois' work in the flesh at The Serpentine Gallery in London in 1999, her Cell pieces were strongly represented. It was a powerful show; the architecture of the gallery was perfect for the work and served to strengthen the impact.

I saw her work again in 2000 in Tate Modern's Turbine Hall and again at her major retrospective there in 2007/08. There are many influences that come and go over the years, but Louise Bourgeois and especially her Cells, remain a constant marker. RESPECT!
