I first discovered Eva Hesse in college taking my Fiber Art classes. Her work is beyond compare: so tactile and raw. She had a wonderful sense of materials and space.
As a female artist ( and a sculptor at that) working in the 1960’s, I can only imagine the struggles she had, especially with some of the materials she chose to use, like fiberglass and rope.

This is a great video about her work. If you'd like to see more of her work please go here.
