Batik 3 & 4

2 x batik on cotton

Two works (included in the series of 6 batiks) "You’re a master at capturing my desire and affection", were created during the artist residency at the RedBase Foundation in Yogyakarta, and are an outcome of artist’s one year stay in Indonesia (as a part of the Darmasiswa RI scholarship organised by the Indonesian Government)

The works, like the entire series, are a visual essay, a metaphorical story about a timeless union, a tight weave of opposing orders - a combination of female and male. This is a multi-threaded collection of closely related motifs representing the cult of fertility, shown as a broader worldview in which the rules of the natural environment are translated into the human world, culture, art and beliefs. The batiks contain a range of performances that show a connection between the micro and the macrocosm.
