”After he decides on the materials and procedures he will use, the artist randomly, without excessive aesthetic desire or predilection, arranges the subject situation with the aid of nylon of various characteristics and quality on the floor. Then he pours a gypsum-lime mass on it, which he binds to the canvas with the help of masonry net, which he lays down as the final layer; fastened to the frame, the gypsum dries and hardens. The final appearance of the painting-relief is achieved by the complete or partial removal of the nylon, whereby the gypsum falls off here and there, revealing the “later” layers of the painting-relief, while in the parts where it has remained, the surface bears the traces of the original, arranged situation.”
