Batik Modern Textile Art
by Dr. Amri Yahya
Batik by Dr Amri Yahya, who lives and works in Java. The colourless background of the batik has
been completely covered with beeswax. Although most of the colours have been painted directly onto the fabric, the
blue and green areas were dyed by immersion. The gauzy areas of crackle are the result of using paraffin wax. The
tjanting's calligraphic marks produce feathery rippling textures in the painted sections.
