LAST PROJECT OF 2010


My last project this year that I started in November is the use of one sketch to do two works in varying patterning and color. The picture shows three Ugandan women weaving baskets and exchanging knowledge about baskets. These two batiks summarize what I've been doing this year - telling a Ugandan story through the colorful patterning in our fabrics. These patterns are all unique and original. I take an extra mile at ensuring that each person in the batik wears a dress with a different pattern. I thank God for you my friends who have encouraged me and made it possible for me to continue creating.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

ELEPHANT BATIK ART

In this new work I'm focusing on wildlife and elephants in particular. I have done several paintings on elephants. This one is a little more interesting as it shows part of the face, particularly, the eye. Emphasis is on a network of skin wrinkles on the face of an old matriarch or the lead cow. I did it with a modern approach making it a 'modern elephant'.

LADIES DRESSED IN TRADITIONAL UGANDAN DRESS, THE BUSUUTI

This new project has 6 batiks in a set showing the rich colors and art found on the traditional Ugandan dress, the GOMESI or BUSUUTI. The women use this dress on traditional functions like weddings and introductions.The size of each batik painting is 40x30 inches. NOT FOR SALE.

AFRICAN WOMAN BATIK

This brand new batik 'AFRICAN WOMAN ' (2013) shows my fullfilled desire to escape the pain of making 'black' faces. I have always longed for figurative batik to take a centre stage in my artwork. This new year I'll have more of these and less of the 'black' empty faces. I want my characters to have a facial expression and I think with this picture finished, I'll continue to be successful.
