    Default Proa Museum

    Yesterday I enjoyed a visit to the Proa Museum which is displaying over 80 works by Louise Bougeois. This is a sampling.

    Bourgeois as in decadent bourgeois? Definitely lacking in socialist realism!

    As usual, you forgot to give us the titles!

    Though her works are abstract, they are suggestive of the human figure and express themes of betrayal, anxiety, and loneliness. Her work was wholly autobiographical, inspired by her childhood trauma of discovering that her English governess was also her father’s mistress.

    Sorry but this “guy” is a women and since you don’t know her, you might enjoy reading about her. Try a google and let us know what you think.

    Holy crap El G that thing could give nightmares to a sane man.

    And you wouldn't catch me walking under it or even near that thing.

    I guess I have watched too many movies.


    But I do see the Canadian flag in the back ground, Ya recon Bill and or Thom had anything to do with it?

    I have read about spiderwomen or the Maman, here is a shot of the top of the one here

    Maman (1999) is a sculpture by the artist Louise Bourgeois. The sculpture, which resembles a spider, is over 30ft high, with a sac containing marble eggs. The title is the familiar French word for Mother.

    Great thread Dan, as always. Love to inject a little art and culture into my depraved mind. It is not easy and/or financially reward to dedicate one's life to art. Most artist are not rewarded until after death.

    Speaking of love . . . this all reminds of a TV show I saw on sexual cannibalism. The little male Australian redback widow spider actually flips itself over during copulation to present its abdomen to the BIG female's mouthparts, and she proceeds to eat her mate alive. How's that for irresistible macho urges?

    I see in Wiki there are 16 of these Maman statues around the world. Is it indicative of the spread of feminism, or just a universal motherhood thing?
