Unhappy and having lost the purpose in life, but stuck together out of inertia and fear of the unknown. Endless possibilities for happiness and fulfilment await at the other side of the worn out routine.
This batik was made on 100% cellulose paper and painted with fiber resist dyes, beeswax and paraffin. Fiber resist dyes from long lasting bonds with the cellulose fibers and become an integral part of the paper. 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.
