Lattice

LATTICE series, 42.0 x 59.4 cm, pencil on paper, 2013

In mathematics, a lattice is a partially ordered set in which every two elements are interlaced. Therefore these lattice drawings are a well-elaborated evolution starting from graph drawings to a finalised full colour drawing. The lattice drawings are reflected through the minimising of line crossings, eliminating line breaks, maximising conflict distance, creating an angle between incident lines, symmetries, compactness, etc.

LATTICE is the application of these ‘lattice drawing aspects’ to a simple everyday object, in this case the suppressing of magazine paper. Starting off with the basic lattice grid while the magazine paper was still untouched, the next step was to crumple the paper. Newly formed shapes and forms were recorded using lattice lines.

The end result is an abstract image, although hints of what the images originally were are still left visible in the final outcome.
