AFRICAN MOTIF REDEFINED IN BATIK ART

This new work shows a deeper expression of the contemporary African motif that I've been practicing in black and white for the past 10 years or so. I started with a series of long batiks in black and white mostly of singular women doing all sorts of domestic activities and always carrying something on their heads.
 In this picture it's a picture of a women meeting each with a distinct motif. Faces are hidden to let the designs do the expression.
