Inspiration- Louise Bourgeois

Textiles by Louise Bourgeois. "Supposedly she was a hoarder of textiles. She took these textiles, some of which were clothing given to her by her father that she would never wear, and repurposed them into art. Her inspiration, her mother, seen through her art in the spider, is taken even further symbolically through the textile arts in her weaves and webs." from
