Description

At the end of her life, Bourgeois created several series of red gouache drawings depicting family, birth, the mother-child dyad, and flowers. She painted directly onto wet paper, which diffused her lines and created diluted fields of red and pink. Bourgeois liked the element of chance this process provided, as random drips and stains often occurred as she worked. For her, red was symbolic of blood, pain, and the body, but also of the intensity of “the emotions involved.” The five blossoms on this stem reference the five members of her family—both the one she grew up in and the one she shared with her husband.

The Skateroom's Louise Bourgeois collection, part of a limited edition of just 100, was created in collaboration with The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Goodee Presents

The Skateroom

The Skateroom merges impactful artists, museums, buyers and non-profits with skate culture to create social change. Printing iconic works of art on responsibly-made skateboards, the project creates unique pieces that foster important conversations while donating to non-profits dedicated to improving humanity through a '5:25' business model: 5% of the turnover or 25% of the profit from every sale - whichever amount is greater. Rooted in the belief that skateboarding and education should coexist, the Skateroom builds and supports skate schools in developing countries around the world to empower underprivileged and at-risk children.
