Eva Hesse was born on January 11th in Nazi Germany. She moved to New York and developed her art there until she passed at only 34 from a brain tumor. In her short 10 year career she developed a sculptural style all her own. She incorporated unusual materials such as fiberglass, and latex in her work. A documentary about her was released in 2016, screening locations can be found here.
" I think art is a total thing. A total person giving a contribution. It is an essence, a soul...In my inner soul art and life are inseparable."
