Simple drawings in red crayon on paper form the basis of this series that hinges on a deliberately expressive style. Despite the essentially loose connection between the individual strokes, all the empty spaces between them have been cut away, literally laying bare the transience and fragility of these skeins of lines.
The term "Schraffen" (hatchings) refers to a method of representing reliefs in topographical maps whereby specifically placed and arranged lines are used to illustrate sloping or the way light falls. The term explains the series’ emphasis on relief-like corporeality. Occasionally, a set of this delicate vertical connecting strips is introduced by way of scaffolding to ensure the drawing does not completely fall apart. However, this by no means undermines the eye-catching presence of the hatching that Hinsberg has left in place. On the contrary. The need for a supporting “corset” makes the lively quality of the individual lines even more apparent. The color red, too, underscores the impression of vitality and unbridled energy.
