I chose the Spiral Woman by Louise Bourgeois. I was drawn to this sculpture because I was interested in why she gave arms and legs to a spiral. As I was reading more about this piece I learned her reasoning behind it. After Bourgeois’ mother had become very sick, her father starting having an affair. This sculpture is suppose to depict flesh-like rolls suffocating a dangling woman whose flexing leg muscles imply that she is still alive. I think this sculpture is very fascinating because even though it represents sexuality and torture it is still appealing to the eye and makes the observer question what is happening.
