working on paper , collage is an important element in my work
again , which creates layers of ‘’skin’’
. Shapes can be moved around . The idea has a better chance of
being developed without being forced . Contrasting elements and
chaos meet each other , making new shapes and images . Wax lines
are kept on the surface and in other places the wax is melted
with a hot iron to keep the underlaying papers into place .
Transparent papers , like tissue paper , create depth ,
overlapping each other .
I like to emphasize the material quality and the tactile values in my work , using the specific technique of Batik in an autonomous way .
