Kwan Chin has a penchant for the Malaysian country life, setting and people. This time, it is no different has he captures a group of villagers resting after a hard day’s chores and errands. The lines and details of the batik are very clear and evident here, proving to the audience how much of an expert Kwan Chin is with his detailing when it comes to batik. The lovely display of colours sets a cheerful, sunny mood for the viewer, at the same time showcasing the complexity of batik-making.
