Textile Batik and Screen Printing
I am often so enamored by our surroundings and the beauty of nature specifically. So for this work, I initially did an A4 sized piece that had watercolor, charcoal and a mix of other mediums. They consisted of very abstract, gothic sunflower paintings and from this, the series came about.
I really wanted to marry two of my favorite mediums together, that is, screen print and batik. Screen printing is a technique where mesh is used to transfer the pattern on to the fabric. I scanned my design, made it more linear and separated the screens for color. So essentially the amount of colors in a design, equals the amount of screens required.
