Irena Saparnis

Medium: Fiber - Non-Wearable

Booth #: GN45

Artist bio: Batik has been a part of my life for more than 30 years. There’s no other media when you can get such unexpected peculiar additions to an original artist design. Web looking lines made by cracker wax, visible brush strokes, accidental spots and various color combinations all it makes batik unique and unpredictable.
My inspiration comes from observing the natural world and can be driven just from color emotions and sounds.

Artist Statement: I try to expend traditional batiking technique by combining it with photo applications.After the original photo image is transferred on silk it had been treated with multiple layers of hot wax and dyes. All photos are original and was taken by me.
