TRINITY MEDITATION is the first print in my Cerebral Labyrinth Series, which will be a group of etchings devoted to Gothic inspired images created from my imagination in combination with photographic scenes from actual places. The tower in the background in this print is actually from a photograph I shot at The Cloisters in New York City in 1988. The three monks are taken from a page in my personal sketchbooks from this year. This etching uses the techniques of intaglio and aquatint. The oil-based ink used is a mixture of Charbonnel brand blacks from France the paper, also imported from France, is Rives BFK white. The print size is 15 inches high by 11 inches wide, 31.8 cm x 30.5 cm. The work was hand printed and published by the artist at The Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Please note that this etching is shipped to the collector without a frame or mat. This keeps the price low and allows the collector personal choice in matt selection and framing. A sturdy cardboard box is employed for shipping the work. The etching is first wrapped in two layers of acid free glassine and then placed between two archival boards. This is next placed into the shipping carton and securely packed with bubble wrap. The Absolute Arts Dot Com price includes all handling costs, shipment supplies, and the coast of the shipment box. Mailing costs are added.
