This unique batik painting on cotton is hand drawn using the ‘canting’ and ‘tulis’ methods and painted by Alim. Each painting is personally signed by the artist. Like gliding through a mystical journey under the ocean, Alim entices his viewers with yet another elusive abstract painting on silk.
Like leaves or flashes of white light, quick shapes whirl and dance in fields of scarlet. The artisan achieves a stunning sense of depth, drawing the eye toward the various shades of colours. His composition’s kinetic force is pleasing and harmonious.
By adopting the Batik Tulis technique, Alim translated his artistic interpretations using a canting, a traditional tool with a small spout filled with hot wax that functions like a pen to resist dyes. All Batik paintings go through wax-dye-boil method, making each art a worthy treasure.
“Strong abstract design is created with rhythms and harmonies in shapes, lines, edges, and colors and is analogous to the rhythms in music and the harmonies between individual notes. This aspect of the painting is completely independent of the subject matter.” – Barry John Raybould
