Hatchpatch is an attempt to in-formalize the grid. Typically the grid serves to formulate compositional matters thus allowing an immediate and spontaneous response to marking, line, divisions, marking, and color. Linear elements reenforce, combat, contrast, and demarcate units, form clusters and define shapes in a suggestive way. This allover marking unifies the surface, substantiates the gesture, and alludes to the cropping of an expansive space.
