I have been rediscovering the amazing work of artist Louise Bourgeois recently. Here are a selection of her images, some of which deal with pregnancy and pregnancy loss. You can see her work at MIMA at the moment:
“The artist’s work explores issues such as vulnerability and fear, and she often draws on her own life experience. Despite the deeply personal references, the questions they raise are universal.
In particular, Bourgeios is concerned with ideas of womanhood in all its various guises – including the roles of daughter, wife, mother and lover. Throughout her work, she draws on a vocabulary of recurring motifs; spiders, spirals, double forms and entwined fabric bodies.” text from MIMA website
