About the work
Hanna Eshel
Israeli, b. 1926
Follow

Over the course of her long and prolific career, Hanna Eshel has produced a widely varied body of work that includes collage, oil painting, and sculpture. She studied painting in the 1950s, and her early works were textured oil paintings on burlap; over time, these paintings became increasingly three-dimensional, amounting to images on both sides of assemblage elements. Eshel discovered her passion and affinity for marble sculpture during a sojourn in Italy, after which she began to create her most iconic stone sculptures with fissures. “It seemed that with this trembling line I was expressing a tension that was appearing everywhere, ” she has said. Eshel moved to New York City in the 1970s and began to make her photo-paintings, in which she extended sections of photographs with paint.
