April Showers by Kristin Breiseth - Picture Frame Painting Print on Paper
Shop on Wayfair


As a child Kristin was always drawing, always painting, always doing something creative. Her mother insisted that being bored indicated a non-creative mind; art and hands-on projects were encouraged. After the traditional college path (B.A. in Religion and Women’s Studies from Dartmouth College), Kristin went to California College of the Arts when she was in her late twenties, getting a degree in Printmaking and working with some of the finest teachers she has ever known. Kristin's work is about movement, marks, and patterns. She makes abstract and non-objective work because she is not interested in the narrative; working to create art that generates a response that doesn’t reach for the story first, compels her. Kristin makes gelatin plate monotypes, which is a process that is super direct and altogether low-tech: She makes the gelatin plates herself, and then handprints everything with water-based inks. Sometimes the hand-pulled prints are perfect as is, but sometimes they want to be cut up and re-imagined -- much of Kristin's work involves cutting up and recombining the original monotypes. Even the dark areas of solid color in the collages are from monotypes hand-printed by Kristin; it is important to her that everything be handmade. Frame Color: Natural, Size: 24" H x 20" W x 1.5" D
