Lisa Foti-Straus
Fall 2015

Hatch started forming when I saw a photo of the wonderful cave dwelling, La Grotta Rosa, that Gae Aullenti had created in Amalfi. This image kicked around my head coming out in paintings of grids overlaid on island like shapes. Then a visit to Dia Art Foundation, moved me to try using tighter lines in pen. Looking at Sol LeWitt's "Wall Drawing #1085" and a few Agnes Martin pieces fueled several more session until the first sketches of "Hatch" formed.
