Between 1972 and 1975, Rohrer made the series of large, minimal paintings included in this publication. The works are notable for their stark structures echoing the planned and chance geometries of the agricultural landscape. Their surfaces are articulated with simple, hatchmark brushstrokes suggesting tilled fields, woven baskets, rows of seeds, or stitching on a quilt. In 1975, Rohrer wrote, "These processes of plowing, planting, cultivating and harvesting are very similar to my processes of layering, defining, obscuring."
