Spec­tral be­ings

Los Angeles Times - - Hot LIst -

Ger­man-born artist Eva Hesse’s un­timely death in 1970 cut short a ca­reer that as­cended to un­prece­dented heights for a fe­male artist at that time. For “Eva Hesse Spec­tres

1960,” the Ham­mer brings to­gether an am­bi­tious se­ries of early works from 1960, com­pleted prior to the sculp­tural as­sem­blages for which she would be­come known. The paint­ings, made when Hesse was 24, bal­ance the psy­cho­log­i­cally fraught with the ges­tu­ral, peo­pled with quasi-self-por­traits and other amor­phous forms. Ham­mer Mu­seum, 10899 Wil­shire Blvd., L.A. Opens Sat. (310) 443-7000.
