Eva Hesse, Random Notes
by Leslie Dick

excerpt: “She will take cord, and wrap her forms with it, gluing the string down. In this way she makes sculptural forms draw obsessive lines, round and round, like a drawing with cross-hatching, like a map marking out territory. She uses compulsively wrapped cord to bring line, the line of drawing, into sculpture, as if the task she set herself was to disrupt the formal language of sculpture, and this was one way to go about it. But then she paints the glued down string, the wrapped cord, to make a very carefully controlled gradation, from dark to light, on the surface of the piece. What is going on?”
