The use of grids in art is closely associated with the emergence of contemporary art. It all started at the beginning of the 20th century with painters like Kazimir Malevich and Piet Mondrian. In 1979, the American art historian Rosalind Krauss wrote an essay pointing out that the grid was a critical step in the evolution of modern art. In this essay she refers to Cubism and painters like Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. Later, artists like Sol LeWittGerhard RichterDonald JuddFrank Stella, and many more used the grid extensively in their work.

The five paintings in the series are acrylic on canvas and measure 20 x 20 cm. I started creating this type of work at a time when I was very interested in the artistic practice of the American artist Mark Bradford.
