AN ADDITION TO THE FISH MEETING SERIES IS OUT

The green batik above is a latest improvement of the FISH MEETING batik series that I started last year.

CHILDHOOD MEMORY

With this new batik I was trying to bring to life my childhood memory of a mud walled house that I grew up in in the 1980s. The walls were cracked every where in the house. I enjoyed lying down and looking up on the walls in the sitting room, where my stepmother kept her photographs and mats. She was one o the best mat weavers in the village.
In this batik I wanted to portray my stepmother sitting down, posing for a photograph with the cracked wall in the background.
This batik shows the direction that Dominic's batik art is taking in this new year. There is going to be a lot of emphasis on detail and color variation but keeping within the trademark style of his art. This is an upgraded version of GIFTS FOR HER that he first did in 2009. The photo was taken with the batik hanging on a line after ironing out the wax.
