This project, inspired by the cut-outs system of Matisse and some other artist’s works, explores different methods of recomposing shapes from cut-out and layering to create new patterns, includes digital patterns and handwork transformed into textile and clothes.
For the first part of the ‘pattern collages’, I researched artworks where the body was the main focus, I recompose them by replacing different elements from colours to shapes to create new patterns.
For the construction of the garments I experimented with Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) using the cut out technique to applied shapes on transparent TPU.
