Venezia - JIM MONSON
Medium: woodcut printed in colors
American, (b. 1943)
Woodcut printed in colors, 1998, edition 80. 16 7/8 x 20 7/8 in. Signed, titled and dated in pencil. This is a fine impression printed on Misumi Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition is fine. The artist describes his work in the reduction woodcut medium as follows, "Color reduction printing is a gradual process of removing already printed areas of color; these zones will remain in their desired color and keep their intensity. The transition from warm colors to cool colors is made by printing multiple layers of opaque white ink (considered as a blockout). The entire edition is printed after each change of color nuance and when the process comes to an end, the printing surface has virtually disappeared to the point of becoming totally unusable."
