Paint Yourself Out

Eva Hesse, No Title (detail), 1960.

“The hell with them all. Paint yourself out, through and through, it will come by you alone. You must come to terms with your own work not with any other being.”  You tell ’em!  Read this excellent piece about the new Eva Hesse exhibit (and about her family’s escape from Europe in 1938), and then go right away to see the show at the Brooklyn Museum.
