Sarkasi Said also known as Tzee, (1940) was born in Singapore and is a self-taught artist who has strived far and wide in an unquenchable thirst for the discovery and knowledge of batik. He has travelled to the various states in Malaysia as well as to the central Javanese cities of Solo and Yogyakarta in pursuit of the batik cultural flame �seeking out practitioners of the art. Sarkasi has developed a distinctive style with the resist-and-dye technique � one that made up most of his oeuvres, which convey roaring forces and movements.� 'Introspection III�' represents Sarkasi�'s complex and compelling production based on an interpretation on the wonders of nature. It consists of a series of visuals, compressed and juxtaposed on a single surface. Each compartment contains semi-abstract representation of foliages, which seems to signify vitality, creation and disintegration. �'Introspection III'� is also representative of a vision which is decentralized and dispersed, yet there is mutual dependence between and among the varied compartments.
