1965 - 1969

In the mid-1960s, Hedda Sterne began a large series of work exploring the juxtaposition of organic forms and atmospheric space. She used a range of “unforgiving” techniques, such as thinned paint poured onto raw canvas and continuous line drawings made with Rapidograph technical pens. These practices helped her to loosen control over the content of her work and discover “secret significance in the depth of the ordinary.”
