HATCH, 2006 - 2007

The Hatch drawings are executed with a burin scratching into the paper, but unlike the Rain series the rapidly scored marks are rectilinear. These drawings connect nominally to the idea of a drawn mark - 'hatching' being a shading technique. They are imaginative exercises in spatial alignment which relate to architecture. In terms of their rectilinearity the Hatch drawings connect most closely to Breathing Room a series of sculptures which began in 2006.
