No title, 1966, is reproduced from <I>Eva Hesse: One More than One</I>.Eva Hesse (1936–1970) was one of the foremost women artists of the twentieth century. Her artistic practice combined the seriality and reduction of 1960s Minimalism with emotion, sensuousness and physicality, while the transparency and transience of her unconventional materials also contributed greatly to her unique position in the art world of her day. From November 2013 onward, the Hamburger Kunsthalle is presenting the first solo exhibition of Hesse’s work in her native city. Hesse emigrated with her family via the Netherlands and England to the United States in 1938. They settled in New York City, where she later studied painting at the Cooper Union School of Art from 1954 to 1957, and then continued her studies in the master class of Josef Albers at the Yale School of Art and Architecture from 1957 to 1959. At the invitation of Friedrich Arnhard Scheidt, a German industrialist and art collector, and his wife Isabel, Hesse and her husband Tom Doyle spent a year in Kettwig an der Ruhr during 1964–1965. This period is regarded as a turning point in Hesse’s artistic practice. Drawing inspiration from the materials she found in an abandoned textile factory in Kettwig, she made her first three-dimensional artworks, and when she returned to New York she devoted herself exclusively to sculpture, creating fragile works in unconventional materials such as polyester, fiberglass and latex. Hesse died of a brain tumor in 1970, aged just 34. The exhibition at the Hamburger Kunsthalle focuses on the latter part of the artist’s career, a highly productive period in which she created a substantial number of sculptures and drawings.

No title, 1966, is reproduced from Eva Hesse: One More than One.

Eva Hesse: One More than One

Eva Hesse: One More than OneIn Eva Hesse: One More Than One, Gioia Timpanelli is quoted, "In our friendship Eva and I had spirit. We were full of beans and full of spirit, and very ordinary things. We had a lot of good times. A pretty good way for an artist to live, for a culture to live too, because if you live that way, you also know what's happening and what's going to happen; the kind of long story of our lives. Then you put in things, and you get serious and somehow, without knowing why, the whole thing falls into a center that's very complicated. It's a little bit like wilderness. The wilderness has not exactly a clean center. That's not its purpose. Eva's center had a lot of complicated stuff, had a lot of threads in it that she wove and unwove, and it was just magnificent. That's why she was profound. That's why her soul was there. That's why she made great art. She did not deny anything." Featured image, of Hesse in her 134 Bowery studio, circa 1966 (originally published in Lucy R. Lippard's remembrance in ARTFORUM, 2008), is reproduced from One More Than One. continue to blog
