Both Hesse’s life and art were fraught with extreme contradictions. Almost impossibly demanding of herself, she was nevertheless completely open to the unknown. The dynamic of her work was not expression, but discovery. She wrote, “It is my main concern to go beyond what I know and what I can know.” She pulled new meanings from deep in her psyche and gave them new formal structures that related to order, yet also resisted it.
