It is with a heavy heart that I write this post. I have just heard news of the passing of one of the most amazing women to ever have graced this earth. The wonderful, beautiful and SO, SO inspirational Louise Bourgeois passed away yesterday, May 31, aged 98.
Despite her age, I had somehow believed she would live forever, so news of her death is still somewhat of a shock to me.
I need to gather my thoughts in order to come back and pay my respects.
RIP the amazing Spider Mistress.
Today the art world, and the WORLD, learned of a great loss.
