About The Artwork

Batik is painting with hot wax on 100% cotton fabric alternating with permanent dye. It is a layering process of wax, then dye, waxing over the colors added, then dye some more and on and on until the entire piece is covered in wax. To achieve the classic crackle look the piece is crumpled to crack the wax and then dipped in more dye, usually black and then left to dry. Next, the artwork is set on layers of paper both on top and under it. A hot iron removes most of the wax into the many changes of paper. The next step the piece is washed in soapy water and hung to dry. It is always a surprise to see the finished art as it an unpredictable method of painting. This piece makes your eyes track all around using the swirling pathway of black shapes. Viewers minds try to make sense of the creation. My goal is to make art that causes people to look at it with study rather than just glaze over it quickly.

My Thoughts Artwork is a reflection of your soul with an inner drive for creativity you are born with. A lifetime of personal unique encounters and education feed those ideas. Creating art allows us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. A process in which to create, enjoy, experiment, and relax. ART REPRESENTS THE MYSTERY AND INWARD SIGNIFICANCE OF THE HUMAN MIND.
