In Patterns, Marzena Nowak transfers dozens of sewing patterns on the canvas. Schematics that define the body’s dimensions, its mathematical coordinates, form a chaotic tangle of lines, a constellation, a kind of three-dimensional map. Above all, however, these abstract patterns evoke the artist’s personal memory – sewing patterns published in women’s magazines such as Burda, that her mother used. Patterns was Nowak’s academy graduation project.
