(Modernizing the Masters) Inspiration of Neo Saints
A reinvention of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, known as simply Caravaggio's masterpiece of Inspiration of Saint Matthew.
Inspiration of Neo Saints is the next installment to the Modernizing the Masters collection by artist C.S.Hawks.
This parody remake was hand drawn & painted from scratch with graphite pencil & acrylic paint.
How the art is crafted:
It starts with pencil to paper
Thick card stock paper
Then some research & geometry
The graphite draws the image
With performance hands of our artist
The drawing is completed.
The drawing is scanned into a computer processor,
And then printed onto canvas.
This new canvas print of the drawing is then soaked in water for 30 minutes.
While the canvas print is soaking in water
A piece of industrial masonite style panel is cut to a desired size
And prepared with a gesso glue.
The wet canvas is gently placed onto the prepared industrial panel
Then the canvas is lightly brushed with a soft flat edge to remove excess gesso
The new canvas panel drawing sets for 24 hours to cure.
Painting is performed by the hands of our artist onto the new canvas panel.
Like a plate made for pressing vinyl records,
The original painting is crafted.
This makes it so there is an Original Drawing & an Original Painting.
We call this method the New Way of the Prestige Technique.
Prints of the painting are available for sale in 2 sizes on satin paper card stock that are signed on the back for authenticity by the artist.
A made to order special canvas panel print production is available with embellishment of texture on the canvas print performed by our artist, and framed.
The canvas panel print is made and mounted to it's panel in the way of the “Prestige Technique” as mentioned above. Hand painted embellishments are brush sculpted by the artist with a unique technique working in acrylic medium, and continuous cure monitoring. Signed on the back for authenticity by the artist C.S.Hawks.
