Louis Bourgeois Coaster Set
Set of four corkboard coasters featuring assorted textile works of artist Louis Bourgeois by Third Drawer Down
Fabric played an important role in Bourgeois's life. She grew up surrounded by the textiles of her parent's tapestry restoration workshop, and from the age of twelve helped the business by drawing in the sections of the missing parts that were to be repaired. A life-long hoarder of clothes and household items such as tablecloths, napkins and bed linen, from the mid-nineties Bourgeois, cut up and re-stitched these, transforming her lived materials into art.
Louise Bourgeois was a French-born American artist who gained recognition late in her long career. Throughout her life, she created many psychologically charged abstract sculptures, drawings and prints.
