Slamet, Tatang and Aprat spoke to me about their work and how it was important to blend some of the traditional elements and techniques into their contemporary, abstract art. They were interested in my work and how different it is to theirs, having seen the printed examples I took with me. It was so good to be talking to these reputed artists, comparing and explaining our different methods and ideas. They would very much like to exhibit with UK batik artists in Britain or Indonesia. Could be quite a project and may even get some funding ? Maybe I am feeling too positive, but I am sure Thetis Blacker would have liked the Idea !
