Cindy Nemser in conversation with Eva Hesse

[...] Where does drawing end and painting begin? I don't know if my own drawings aren´t really paintings except smaller and on paper. The drawings could be called painting legitimately and a lot of my sculpture could be called painting." (1)


John Chandler, american art critic about Eva Hesse`s Circle Drawings

„the more things remain the same, the more significant are the changes"[...]Drawing after drawing, row after row, circles, circles, circles, redundancy. But: no two of the drawings were alike!" (2)

Hesse responds to the question of why she repeated forms again and again

"Because it exaggerates. If something is meaningful, mayby it's more meaningful said ten times. It's not just an aesthetic choice. If something is absurd, it's much more exaggerated, more absurd if it´s repeated....(Re)epetition does enlarge or increase or exaggerate an idea or purpose in a statement. (3)


Hesse about Sans II

I would like the work to be non-work. [...]

It is something it is nothing. (4)
