Eva Hesse (1936-1970)

Repetition Nineteen III, 1968

Right After, 1969

Eva Hesse was an American sculptor born in Germany. She started sculpting using the materials from an abandoned factory where she and her husband lived. Hesse is primarily known for her three-dimensional work, which is characterized by its repetition, use of unstable materials that decay through time, and representations of fragility.
