My monotype on paper "Puccini (Venezia)" was inspired by my history in Venice, Italy. On a warm summer evening sometime in the past, the composer Puccini gazes out across the Riva Degli Schiavoni towards San Marco. Who is the figure in the middle distance? A friend perhaps? A lover? When I was in graduate school studying in Venice, I would often stand in this spot and gaze back into the heart of the city. Sargent also created a painting from a vantage point close to mine. Venice is a city of mystery and paradox which continually enriches my life. Notes on the Monotype Process Spontaneity characterizes the monotype. A monotype is generally made by brushing printer's ink or oil paint onto a smooth surface such as glass or a metal plate. The image is then transferred to paper before it dries, using a printing press or other means of pressure. I usually use a copper plate on which I paint an idea in oil based etching inks. Next I lay the plate onto the bed of a printing press and put a sheet of blank paper on top of the ink laden plate. The plate and paper are then run through the printing press under great pressure. Because most of the image is transferred in the printing process, only one strong impression can be taken, hence the term monotype (one print). Additional impressions of the residual image are often printed (ghosts). They are significantly fainter than the first pull, yet at times these lighter, open images are successful as works of art. The personal nature of the monotype suited experimental artists from William Blake to Edgar Degas to Milton Avery to Mitchell Friedman. These artists used the monotype process to fashion works of great depth and mystery. Their artworks inspire my own. Please Note: This artwork is printed on a 30"x22" sheet of paper and the plate size (image size) is 18"x12" so a nice clean border surrounds the image. "Puccini (Venezia)" was on exhibit in my solo exhibition "Chadwick at the Opera" at the Central City Opera in Colorado in 2019.
