Eva Hesse (Book): Eva Hesse's distinctive process-based art exerted a powerful influence on minimalist artists of the s and continues to inspire artists today. Using industrial materials such as latex and fiberglass, she exploited their flexibility to produce works with an unsettling psychic and corporeal resonance. Hesse, who was born in Germany in and raised in New York City, died. Eva Hesse’s collected diaries begin at the end. In the book’s last sentence, editor Barry Rosen thanks Hesse’s friend Gioia Timpanelli for discovering the diaries “on a low shelf in Eva Hesse’s studio.” After reading Hesse’s hope that “this book becomes my best friend,” you have to wonder if they should’ve stayed there.
