Insomnia Drawings. Throbbing Pulse, Louise Bourgeois, 1944.

“I am an insomniac, so for me the state of being asleep is paradise. It is a paradise I can never reach. But I still try to conquer the insomnia, and to a large extent I have done it; it is conquerable. My drawings are a kind of rocking or stroking and an attempt at finding peace. Peaceful rhythm. Like rocking a baby to sleep.”

Mia's ceramics are hot-baked kindred spirits to my own work, but frothier.
