Tools of My Trade (Batik)
This is a batik painting inspired by M.C. Escher's lithograph 'Drawing Hands' 1948, only the hands are holding, not a pencil, but a canting (tjanting) and a dyebrush which are tools of my trade.
In 2012, I produced this batik for an exhibition entitled 'Hands' at the Chester Art Centre, Nova Scotia. We were asked to interpret hands in an original way using different media. This was my contribution - 'Tools of My Trade'!
