The Artist

Louise Bourgeois

Confessional art reveals the inner landscape and processes through painting, sculpture and other forms. Louise Bourgeois is widely recognised as the progenitor of confessional art. It is almost impossible to truly interpret her work without reference to her biography. She offered a very literal symbolism that lent itself to explanations that were closer to psychoanalyses than art theory. This has led some people to wonder what the significance of her work will be when she has passed away and is no longer able to tie it into her personal history. She passed away in 2011 so now it is up to history to decide.
