At the beginning my costume was supposed to be a combination of geometrical shapes with expressive application of colorscontrasted with white geometrical shapes on it.
New fabric gave me new possibilities. When I worked with thick patchwork it was hard to achieve pure geometrical form of my costume (because geometrical forms were also to appear as a painted elements . When I decided to use flax canvas which I lined with fleece(?) to make it stiff, my costume became more expressive and clear in shape. I resigned from painted geometrical forms. Only the shape of my costume will be refer my work to the geometric clarity of Constructivists, while painting will be purely expressionistic.
I will not apply color with brush as I did it before, but now I will splash the paint straight from a bucket. This will be direct reference to the method used by Jecskon Pollock. It appears that even using the technique seemingly ruled by chance, you can build a variety of climates and (inner tensions.
