Radość (Joy) - Marta Wakuła-Mac
Storm senses surprising new series: a dancer and styled consecutive numbers. There is once again a return to the female form, but clad mostly in red dresses. The visibility of the linocut technique favors additional expression, leaving traces of conducting chisel and inadvertently bringing an association with the graphics of the German Expressionists. The dresses of the dancers are completely flat in color, yet form rotating spots. "Viewing this series, it gives you the impression of continuous motion, dancing. " (Teresa B. Frodyma, part of a larger text about the artist).
