watch + read : Louise Bourgeois

To celebrate our new collaboration with The Easton Foundation, featuring the works of Louise Bourgeois, we wanted to share some of our favourite insights into the late artist's life. We are always overjoyed to see Louise's collections come to life, and can't wait to share our new collection with you, partly available now to pre-order here! 

French-Born, the artist lived in New York where she produced some of her most celebrated large scale sculpture pieces and textile works. Our first favourite insight of the life of Louise is from The New York Times. The prestigious publication had the pleasure of visiting the Louise Bourgeois House in NYC, just as she left it. "Louise never threw anything out", her assistant and dear friend Jerry Gorovoy is quoted saying, so the photos really give a wonderful insight into her personality.

Why Kusama is a phenomenon!

Where do I begin with Yayoi Kusama, a phenomenon! Kusama entered my life in 2012 whilst working with Tate on the Kusama exhibition merchandise project. The exhibition travelled to Whitney Museum in the subsequent year and my admiration and respect for her has grown ten-fold in this time.
