Louise Bourgeois

“Once I was beset by anxiety. I couldn’t tell right from left or orient myself. I could have cried out with terror at being lost. But I pushed the fear away—by studying the sky, determining where the moon would come out, where the sun would appear in the morning. I saw myself in relation to the stars. I began weeping and knew I was alright. That is the way I make use of geometry. The miracle is that I am able to do it by geometry.”

– Louise Bourgeois

Eva Hesse

“I wanted to get to non-art, non connotive {sic}, non anthropomorphic, non geometric,
                       non, nothing, everything, but of another kind, vision, sort: from a total other reference
                       point. Is its possible?”

– Eva Hesse 1969
