'Mimicking the organic vulnerability of the human body itself, work by Hesse seems to take on a tentative or even ephemeral life of it's own.'  
-The Art Story Contributers

Eva Hesse is an inspiration that I keep coming back to. I was first drawn into her work by the materials that she worked with, in the latter part of her life more so. She worked with a wide variety of materials including latex, rubber and metal. I come from an applied arts background and have been dying to get back into working with different materials. A wide variety of materials can cost a lot of money, however I am hoping to bring that cost down by possibly including some work using found materials and objects etc. 
A key part of her career for me is that she’s using material to explore and re-create/ experiment with human values. I’m currently toying with the idea of challenging function through our material values, while experimenting with the idea of camouflage and lack there of.
