subtlest inside, monstrous outside

colourline grid systems 

series of drawings

the project is conceived in synthesis between current interest in two-dimensional grid and contemplation on ‘safety net’ of private confinement - perceived immunity our homes grant us in times of global pandemic:
it is an exploration on spatial grid that provides framework for and, simultaneously plays with recurrent architectural elements - stairway, open doorway, windowframe, a threshold: the grid stays neutral but is activated by spatial event

pencil’s texture is counteracting austerity of the grid: stroke of oil pencil gives line the volume, adding to dimensionality of composition itself

subtitle  - subtlest inside, monstrous outside - 

refers to centripetal quality of grid system, inclosing the immune inside (what rosalind krauss called 'introjection of the boundaries of the world into interior of the work' )
