Krista Mezzadri explores the movement of repetition, utilizing the juxtapositions of texture and translucency, silhouetted depth and distinct flatness. Her interest lies in the convergence of process and craft, materials, and elements of nature. Rather than replicate the forms of nature, she speaks to our intuitive appreciation of movement and pattern ubiquitous in the natural world, and invites this abstract reflection in the viewer.
Mezzadri’s works maintain a monochromaticity to emphasize the tones, forms, and texture within the transparent layers. Furthermore, she intends the shapes made within the layered additions of ink to add to the composition, and encourages imperfect tactility to become a feature of the message.
