Yanling (LDX) and
Ma Yanling (Front Line)
From the Front Line Gallery description: "Ma Yanling is a conceptual
artist who uses painting, photography and performance to explore a
variety of themes." She's very creative and multi- talented too.
I also included a picture of the beautiful Chinese actress Hu Die
(Butterfly) from Wikimedia Commons.
The Batik Guild
"The art of decorating cloth in this way, using wax and dye, has been
practised for centuries. In Java, Indonesia, batik is part of an ancient
tradition, and some of the finest batik cloth in the world is still made
there. The word batik originates from the Javanese tik and means to dot."
