Fourths & Fifths

Fourths & Fifths

This series takes its name from perfect fourth and fifth chords. It was inspired by the possibility of using music and harmonic progression to determine the colors.

Line Paintings

Line Paintings

The same gesture was repeated in rows until the surface was covered, exaggerating horizontal lap marks to create lines. An exploration of obsessive mark-making and the fact you can never step into the same river twice - the same gesture produced slight variations from mark to mark.

Multiple Parts

A selection of work in multiple parts - some recent, some early - reflecting Hirschi's interest in relationships between different hues.

Work on Paper

Paper

A blank sheet of paper is a beautiful thing. This album includes a sculpture from gessoed pages torn from a vandalized library book and the 'Stripstack' editions published by inde/jacobs gallery. The image for the prints was created from a heavily manipulated digital photograph of torn sheets of drawing paper.
