Making History

The Confederate flag continues to motivate octogenarian artist Leo Twiggs


Leo Twiggs is a patient man. As an artist he uses a process known as batik, a method of wax-resist dying where wax is applied to a fabric, which is then dipped into dye. The areas applied with wax keep their original color, hence the term resist. The wax is then removed and the process is repeated until the number of colors and desired patterns are achieved. “It’s a long and tedious process,” says Twiggs. “We live in a time when people like instant gratification, so many artists simply don’t use this method.”
