Daniel Mitsui  ~  Religious Artwork




RELIGIOUS ARTWORK by DANIEL MITSUI






In my religious drawings, I attempt to be faithful to the instructions of the Second Nicene Council, which stated that the composition of religious imagery is not the painter’s invention, but is approved by the law and tradition of the Catholic Church.... The tradition does not belong to the painter; the art alone is his. True arrangement and disposition belong to the holy fathers who established it. Detailed explanations of my approach to religious art can be read here:

INVENTION and EXALTATION
HEAVENLY OUTLOOK
GOLD out of EGYPT


Ink drawing on calfskin is my preferred medium. All of the original drawings are made by hand, including the lettering and ornamental patterns.

My ambition is to draw is an iconographic summary of the Old and New Testaments. Please read more about this project for the future:

LETTERPRESS BROADSIDES from MILLEFLEUR PRESS



Millefleur Press is my imprint for publishing letterpress broadsides, bookplates & fine printed books inspired by the incunabula & blockbooks of the 15th century.

Most of the broadsides are printed in black ink only. I offer hand-colored versions, using bottled calligraphers’ inks for color and gold and palladium leaf for illuminated details.

The following broadsides were printed on either a Heidelberg windmill or a Heidelberg cylinder press at Rohner Letterpress (Chicago, IL) using Albion Matte Black, a traditional printing ink made by Graphic Chemical & Ink (Villa Park, IL). The paper was handmade from cotton rag pulp at Twinrocker Handmade Paper (Brookston, IN). It is a laid paper, which means that it has a slight ribbed texture from the wires in the papermaking mould.
