Louis Bourgeois

Louise Bourgeois is one of the artists who doesn't stop to surprise me. Yes, I am a total fan, I admit, but when I encountered her holograms it was an invigorating experience. The work is small, projecting away from the wall into bright red hologram. It is simple, rough, even crude and very poignant. My favorite is the chair in the corner that I have anthropomorphized in my mind into an isolated individual from a Becket play.

If you have a chance see it, this has to be viewed in person for the full experience.
The work is on view at Cheim & Read until February 11
