Reverse appliqué wallhanging, constructed with nine layers of hand-batiked silk. 2005. The artists began working with this process in 2004, whereby they cut batiks, sew parts together, and stitch across surfaces, creating an organic-looking cloth overlapping in bits and parts like feathers, reaching towards three dimensions. Another aspect that distinguishes these dense, rich works from traditional batik textiles is that they are two-sided, like coins, showing two different faces to the world, which are united as a single work. In this instance the artists have chosen to depict the Tree of Life motif, one of the most encompassing symbols of regeneration, growth and connection known to humankind.

Dimensions: 43” x 55”.
