Artist's description:

This piece is a tribute to the ecuadorian painter Oswaldo Guayasamín.

Reds, oranges, warmth and closeness
Shades of blue, distance and peace
A child in search of his/her own self seeks distance, deliberately cuts the cord and walks away. Drifting apart, though painful sometimes, is how the path to adulthood is found. Wise and rare are those parents that are sensitive enough to know the right distance. Not so close to overwhelm, not so far that feels like absence.

This batik was made on 100% cotton fabric and painted with fiber resist dyes, beeswax and paraffin. Fiber resist dyes form long lasting bonds with the fibers in the fabric and become an integral part of the fabric. After each color is applied, it is coverd with wax, and the next color then applied. This process is repeated over and over until the whole piece is painted.

The final step in batik paiting is cracking. The whole piece is covered with a mix of beeswax and parafin, then crumpled and a contrasting dye is applied to the breaks in the parafin. Then all the wax is removed with heat. Cracking adds a level of complexity and gives an unpredictable twist to the original design.
