An exhibition of batik works by Sarkasi Said from the 1990s to the present, this exhibition follows the personal development of Sarkasi’s style and traces the history of his practice, from his days as itinerant street artist, to becoming a prominent batik artist. Sarkasi continues to uphold the foundational principles of the resist technique in batik even as he holds in tension conceptual perspectives between craft and contemporary practice. Eleven works are included in the exhibition, collectively demonstrating shifting interests from discipline to the expressive, from allusions to tradition and nature to the imagined space, in his words, “… always moving”.
