Abstract [en]

Abstract Prints and artwork in fashion are often made separately from the body and garment, processed through digital media and printed with mechanized precision. Far from the dynamic experience a painting can offer. This work elaborates how to build a collection of garments based on the body, using interactive methods. Its purpose and context is to find another print aesthetic in garment through abstract painting and cutting. In regard to the craft I hope to preserve the hands involvement as part of the expression. Suggesting another way to do prints in fashion that allow a more intimate relationship between body, fabric and color. This work explores the body-fabric relation through abstract painting to develop another print aesthetic and way of doing print. Hanging rectangular pieces of fabric over my head and energetically painting the fabric against the body results in an abstract approximation of the body-fabric relation. This approximation is analyzed by cutting and draping in regard to the painting and study of directions through lines. This method has generated a static approximation of the body-fabric relation which can be used as a tool for composing colors.
