Silk Batik painting
artwork image 5″ x 5″
This is one in a series of intimate silk paintings that were inspired by my 30 year yoga practice. I call this technique “Double Vision”. Two images are created, one layered over the other to compose one harmonious piece of art. The technique is BATIK on silk. BATIK is an ancient method of wax resist drawing using special tools and hot wax. The image is first drawn with hot wax on white silk. The wax blocks the flow of color as it flows over the silk. The wax is melted off, permanently heat setting the colors and the leaving the white “wax” line in the image. Two layers of different silks are used, one sheer piece is stretched over the bottom silk painting. In this piece, I’ve added crystals to the bottom painting to enhance its spiritual message. The sheer silk image is slightly lifted over the bottom layer, giving it an almost holographic effect.
