Byron Bratt | Mezzotints
Designed by Cathy Blackburn
Introduction by Richard V. West
This catalogue was published by the Frye Art Museum in conjunction with its exhibition Byron Bratt Mezzotints (July 9–September 7, 1997). This exhibition featured thirty-nine hand-colored mezzotint prints created by the artist between 1978 and 1997.
Byron Bratt is one of the rare contemporary practitioners of the mezzotint process. He skillfully uses the inherent warmth and richness of the medium to create appealing, mysterious images of everyday objects. Bratt applies a subversive interpretation to what appears, at first glance, to be straightforward images and spatial relationships.
This publication includes an introduction by Richard V. West, an artist’s statement, and selected biography along with an exhibition checklist and full color illustrations of the exhibition artwork.
