Kate Krasin (American, 1943-2010) was a master of the silkscreen print. For a single print she might use as many as forty successive screens, all cut by hand, to create a detailed, textured work of art. She formulated transparent inks and layered colors, creating an ethereal beauty uncommon for the medium of silkscreen. Drawn to the land and mindful of civilizations that had gone before her, Krasin focused on the landscape and sense of mystery of her native New Mexico. She captured the elusive quality of the light, whether illuminating spring blooms, casting shadows in a forest, or reflecting off freshly fallen snow. Her work ranges from small cards to large, complex prints. Krasin’s prints are in the collections of the Roswell Museum and Art Center, the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History, the New Mexico State Capitol and the New Mexico Museum of Art.
