Description

It is sad that I must part ways with one of my favorite art pieces I have ever made, but it is time for me to see what it can do in the Etsy world!

This is a 20" x 24" Batik.
Fabric: Muslin.
Media: Ink and dye.
Mount: stretched over a wood frame with wire hanger on back.

Fight Club has always been one of my favorite movies; it's what I watch to neutralize my anger or anxiety, when I have it. If you've seen the movie, you'll get why THIS movie is my neutralizer!

After seeing it for the umpteenth time, I figure, "why not make a Fight Club inspired piece?" So I made 2. The other will be listed later, but this one is my favorite.

Process side note: I crafted it all in one day, over a period of about 10-12 hours (I lost track), after which I had lasting back pains for over 3 weeks and had to see a chiropractor to get fixed. This was a true labor of love.

My technique was a layering process, starting with ironing the muslin, stretching it over the frame and stapling in place, followed by the sketch.
Next, was covering what would become the negative space with melted wax, then painting the remainder with various colors of fabric dye.
After that, I removed the muslin from the frame and laid it flat; laid old, thin towels over it and ironed the whole thing, so that the wax would transfer from the muslin to the towels. This wax/ dye/ iron process repeated thrice, until the desired effects happened with the faces, hair, etc.
Last I applied final touches of dye and ink to the finished product after remounting it, and added the hanging hardware.


It has been exhibited at Zappos.com headquarters, 400 E. Stewart ave, Las Vegas, NV 89101 and Crafthaus Brewery, 7350 Eastgate Rd #110, Henderson, NV 89011.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
I will definitely miss it in my house.

*Cheers*

    I feel very lucky to have been given the opportunity to purchase this piece and it's beautiful! The complex mix of different medias is not at first apparent but becomes relevant at different angles with the way the light hits it. So many media layers! You just want to get right in front of it and study every line and detail. Not to mention the subject matter... which is at once intriguing and forbidden. Who dares to satisfy their curiosity by openly paying attention and truly looking at this piece? Anyone worth knowing I say. Thank you so much for this gift of art! I truly appreciate your talent and mind. Words cannot express.
