In 1965 young sculptor Eva Hesse wrote to conceptual artist Sol Lewitt complaining of creative block. This is what he told her:
“Just stop thinking, worrying, looking over your shoulder wondering, doubting, fearing, hurting, hoping for some easy way out…stop bitching, moaning, groaning, honing, boning, horse-shitting, hair-splitting and nit picking.. don’t worry about cool, make your own uncool. Stop worrying about big deep things. You are not responsible for the world – you are not responsible for the world – you are only responsible for your work – so DO IT”. And she did.
