Eva Hesse with her 1968 reliefs An Ear in a Pond and 2 in 1
“Eva Hesse [1936-1970] was a highly experimental artist who continually challenged the conventions of her time. For Hesse, drawing played a unique role, providing the nexus between her works in all media. An accomplished draftswoman, Hesse began to develope her wandering, tentative line while studying at Yale University in the late 1950s. Her early 1960s works on paper engaged with visual vocabularies from geometry to biomorphic abstraction. In 1965, Hesse combined her tactile sensibility for materials with her string-like line to achieve a breakthrough: her astonishing reliefs, which began to bridge the space between two and three dimensions.”

This final drawing sort of blew my mind when I saw it. I did not discover it until after having made nearly identical drawings of my own.
