About the Artist

Cindy Wilson is Butterfield's March Artist-of-the-Month. Cindy's new series of batiks, Fauna in the Flora, is on display throughout March. Join Cindy for her artist talk at 6:00 pm, on Friday, March 3, during St. Augustine's First Friday Art Walk. You can also get a peek behind the creative curtain on Saturday, March 19 at 2:00 p.m., when Cindy will present a short hands-on demo of the batik and the dyeing process.With Fauna in the Flora, Cindy has created batiks from fleeting glimpses of nature, or the sounds of animal and bird calls she encounters. In some batiks she has partially hidden the fauna, in others she playfully places birds and creatures into altered scenes that might be considered still life’s.

The series also includes collaboration with a talented poet, Antionette Libro. Both women are often inspired by each other's work, creating new works in response. Some of those pairings will be on display at the gallery.

Cindy’s batiks are known for the high level of detail and painterly quality she is able to express with the medium. A long background of drawing has guided her work. Cindy uses a tjanting tool from Indonesia to apply hot wax much in the same way as an artist uses a quill to lay down ink. Layer by layer, the liquid wax seals the color she wants to preserve before the next dye is applied. Her process of building colors directly on the fabric is unique and creates the depth of color seen in her batiks. “Balancing the technical process, while keeping a feel of spontaneity is my overall focus as I work on a piece” Cindy explains. 

Cindy’s work has caught the attention of both jurists and collectors. She has been included in numerous regional shows and her batiks grace the homes of many collectors around the country. She teaches her technique in classes at The Bascom Center for the Arts in Highlands NC, as well as locally.
