jennilee: Two years ago, sculptor Hanna Eshel was looking for a roommate and placed this ad on Craigslist. “I didn’t want to explain my loft; you just have to see it,” the 87-year-old artist said of the apartment where she lived and worked since 1978. Filled with climbing houseplants, simple wooden furniture and, most profoundly, her art — abstract paintings and hulking sculptures made from Carrara marble — it’s a place that time forgot. For nearly four decades, she chiseled and sanded away in quiet obscurity, apart from a few small shows. “I had no interest in promoting art,” she says. Besides, the sensuous, minimalistic forms of her work were not necessarily in step with the current trends. “There was Pop Art and Op Art. I didn’t follow the fashions.” (via Legacy | A Love Eternal)
