The article features the artist Pat Hodson. Hodson loves colors and fuses ancient and cutting edge technologies to produce luminous art works. During the 1970s, the quality of color in dyes drew her to batik. Through the years, she has made scarves to sell at artcraft fairs, designed standing screens for interiors and created complex layered wall pieces and installations. In her present work, batik is only the beginning of a series of processes that include computerized patterns.
