In July, I saw a biography of Eva Hesse, a German  American painter/sculptor.  I was inspired by how she eventually began to create 2D paintings which crawled out of the picture plane and become 3D sculpture.  While this piece looks nothing like her work, it does honor it.  This is a textile, two pieced "quilts" made from fabric I printed in various ways, from which the tubes emerge.  Because they are wired as well as stuffed with cotton cord, they are fairly malleable and can be manipulated to some degree, yet hold their own.
