In Eva Hesse: One More Than One, Gioia Timpanelli is quoted, "In our friendship Eva and I had spirit. We were full of beans and full of spirit, and very ordinary things. We had a lot of good times. A pretty good way for an artist to live, for a culture to live too, because if you live that way, you also know what's happening and what's going to happen; the kind of long story of our lives. Then you put in things, and you get serious and somehow, without knowing why, the whole thing falls into a center that's very complicated. It's a little bit like wilderness. The wilderness has not exactly a clean center. That's not its purpose. Eva's center had a lot of complicated stuff, had a lot of threads in it that she wove and unwove, and it was just magnificent. That's why she was profound. That's why her soul was there. That's why she made great art. She did not deny anything." Featured image, of Hesse in her 134 Bowery studio, circa 1966 (originally published in Lucy R. Lippard's remembrance in ARTFORUM, 2008), is reproduced from One More Than One.
