Louise Bourgeois: Fabric into Art

Image coming soon.

Altoon Sultan posts about Louise Bourgeois: The Fabric Works at Cheim & Read on view until June 25, 2011.

Sultan writes: "what made the use of fabric so different from paint… it is the vulnerability of fabric, its fragility that lends a special poignancy to the work. Paint is so robust in comparison. And even though a painting and one of these fabric works are both handmade, there is a metaphor in the careful stitching of piece to piece not present in paint on a surface."
