Louise Bourgeois was a renowned French-American artist and sculptor best known for her emotionally charged spider structures, titled Maman, named for her mother, a weaver. Over her lifetime, Bourgeois amassed an incredible collection of all manner of textile, from humble tablecloths and napkins, to lavish clothing and bed linens. Of all objects, fabrics in particular resonated with the artist on a deep, personal level. Bourgeois grew up in the outskirts of Paris, the daughter of parents who had a booming business restoring tapestries rescued from deserted chateaus. While reminiscent in style to the web-like paintings and sculptures created earlier in her career, the intricate textile “drawings” created by the artist in her 90th decade reflect a departure from anger to acceptance of her past. The act of sewing, she said, was her attempt to keep things together and make them whole. Each work exists as a poignant, tactile memento of years past and loved ones lost. Reproduced meticulously by Third Drawer Down, this set of intricate coasters recaptures Bourgeois’ final works in dazzling detail. Bourgeois’ work is in MoMA’s collection and was featured in the exhibition Louise Bourgeois: The Complete Prints & Books. Set of four corkboard coasters. Heat resistant up to 225Â°F. Wipe clean with a damp cloth. SIZE:4l x 4w x 19″h MATERIALS:Cork DESIGNER:Louise Bourgeois DATE:2012
