It’s been some time since Bourgeois’s passing. As I sit here reflecting on the first time I saw her work, it’s rather difficult to imagine the contemporary art world without her. She worked on such a grandiose scale but it couldn’t have been any other way. With her mastery of the human body and a great command for creating organic forms, it’s as if she saw something inside the human body that had yet to be discovered and sculpted it as if she were the surgeon herself.
There’s not much more to say other than Thank you, Ms. Bourgeois. Thank you for your generosity, your genius and your vision.
