This series of acrylic paintings explores material encoding in design disciplines by adapting the hatch, a flat encoding of texture for legal construction documents, to perspectival landscapes. The HATCH series began as an elaboration on several rapid, annotative landscape sketches made under the constraints of backcountry hiking. Ultimately, I found more to investigate in the process of translating annotations into images than in images themselves.
How does the material history of modern Computer Aided Design, with legacy categories and roots in weaving patterns, propagate through contemporary production of spaces? Where does this abstraction fail against the reality of nature?
