Kalisz’s project "Act of pattern" is focused on the female body. Concentrated on the delicate and soft forms of the woman body she plays the game of shadows where light shows parts of women’s figures covered in patterned materials placed on colorful backgrounds. Nameless bodies make the scene more mysterious and the paintings seem almost abstract- eyes get lost in the multitude of lines, colors, and shapes. The ornaments that is used are mainly from the Middle East where she is fascinated by the symmetry, colors, harmony, and rhythm. "Act of Pattern" is a reflection of her experience, travels and traditions, where she aims to combine two different cultures: European (female nude) and Islamic (ornaments).
