Krista Barrett Multi-Plate Etching Video

Krista Barrett's glowing personality and playful prints made for a great demo

On First Friday, October 2, 2015, New Grounds hosted an exhibition opening for printmaker Krista Barrett's newest series - Portals - Mixed Media Prints by Krista Barrett. 

During the opening, Krista provided a fun, multi-plate etching demonstration, where she discussed her inking, registration and printing methods, as well as the playful way that she creates rich monoprints from a selection of plates cut to identical sizes. Krista inks each plate differently each time, then combines them in diverse ways, to create entirely unique 'portals' into new, colorful spaces.

We have cut Krista's demo into a short video, viewable on our YouTube Channel (or view it below!).
