Artwork description:

This monotype print explores a painting by the great master Titian of a boy wearing a red tunic. The idea is to explore the style of Titian and how he composed an image, yet applying this form to the monotype printing method on a dry surface, rather than a dampened surface, therefore giving an appearance of the image in a state of entropy, akin to a painting on a wall that has begun to disintegrate over time as seen in Cyprus and Italy (Frescoes), bringing a sense of the passage of time and the aging process of time.

I was also drawn to the bold use of red colour in this image and how it would work as a monotype printing on fabriano paper, rather than as an oil on a surface.

[As a side note thought: I'd say that the slight shift from the colour pink to red could also relay a subtle nod to the change from boyhood to manhood, which in honesty is probably something picked up on in subconscious form, but maybe this has come into play in this image. Historically boys were originally dressed in pink being seen as being 'half' of red, which men would wear as a mark of manhood. Maybe this boy is on the verge of becoming a man in those days.]

[Framed in a mount frame with backing board and sealed in a polypocket bag from protection]
