Description

The angular pattern of this monotype gives the work a soothing visual rhythm. The streaks of ink, ranging in darkness and depth, serve as a nod to the artist’s handiwork.


About the Artist

Born in 1987 and based in Buffalo, New York, Krista Mezzadri has worked in a variety of media, with printmaking her focus for the past several years. Krista has previously exhibited work in the UK. Her artworks are held in private collections throughout the UK, USA, and Europe. 

Working mainly within a monochromatic palette, Mezzadri encourages imperfect tactility to become a feature of the message of her work. Her monotype prints are made by hand on translucent washi paper, and then layered and overlapped, before being laminated together onto wooden panels with paste. Following this process of layering and collaging onto wooden panels with rice paste, the printed sheets dissolve both together and into the panel underneath. Self-taught, Mezzadri maintains an experimental approach to her artistic practice, which explores the movement of repetition, utilising contrasts of texture and translucency, silhouetted depth and distinct flatness. Engaging with the coexistence of opposites, her work exhibits the fusing of many opposing physical elements together - tissue and wood; light and darkness; geometry and irregularity. Mezzadri is interested in the meeting point of these opposites - their ‘dynamic dependence’.
