Her personal world is mine

"Do you know the New York sky? You should, it is supposed to be known.  It is out standing.  It is a serious thing.  Can you remember the Paris sky?   How unreliable, most of the time grey, often warm and damp, never quite perfect, indulging in clouds and shades; rain, breeze and sun sometimes managing to appear together.  But the New York sky is blue, utterly blue.  The light is white, a glorying white and the air is strong and it is healthy too.  There is no foolishness about that sky.  it is a beautiful things.  It is pure."

"What modern art means is that you have to keep finding new ways to express yourself, to express the problem, that there are now settled ways, no fixed approach.  This is a painful situation, and modern art is about this painful situation of having no absolute definite way of expressing yourself."

Louise Bourgeois
