BBC. Secret Knowledge. Tracey Emin on Louise Bourgeois Women Without Sec...

If you don't know about Louise Bourgeois , I recommend this video.  It is almost half an hour long, and gives a wonderful look at this renowned artist.   One thing she says in the video is that its not about the materials or the craft,  but rather, all about the  emotion.  You can feel the emotion through the screen.

Wikipedia describes her as:

Louise Joséphine Bourgeois (French: [lwiz buʁʒwa]; 25 December 1911 – 31 May 2010),[1] was a renowned French-American artist and sculptor, one of the most important artists in modern and contemporary art, and known for her spider structures which resulted in her being nicknamed the Spiderwoman.[2] Her largest spider sculpture titled Maman has loomed over numerous locations around the world, standing at over 30 ft (9.27m).[3]
