“Sleep of Reason” is a Singer Editions fine art print of an original Goya inspired fine art mixed-media piece.
Francisco Goya is one of Catto’s favorite painters. “The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters,” from his “Los Caprichos” etchings, is a particular favorite. The sleeping figure from Goya’s masterpiece became the starting point for the original mixed media work. This collage work combines a variety of floral elements, animals, and color, which then morphed into a print.

Singer Editions is a fine art digital printmaking atelier specializing in the production of limited edition prints. Artist and printmaker work collaboratively, following a very traditional printmaking model during which the artist is involved at every stage of the process. The digital nature provides an unprecedented amount of control, insuring that every print accurately and faithful represents the artists’ vision. Each print is produced one-at-a-time by hand, and goes through a careful curating process before leaving the studio. In addition to the pride and craftsmanship that goes into the production of these prints, at every step of the process the highest quality, most permanent and most archival materials are utilized. The use of these quality materials insures that the prints will last a lifetime with no degradation to color or substrate. These prints were produced digitally using Epson printmaking technology. The paper is Museo manufactured by Crane; it combines a natural paper base with a surface specifically prepared to receive ink. I keep my editions small.
