Kentucky Art Barn Symphony

Studios are like fingerprints. No two are alike.

Printmaker Chris Plummer’s place of creation is a barn in rural Kentucky. Even on the spectrum of creative spaces, his studio is an outlier.

The first thing I noticed upon entering was the dead quiet of the place. Once I desensitized myself to the absence of the sounds of modernity, I could hear the things I wasn’t expecting.

Bird songs came first. Then some wind sounds became audible. Hearing his blades make their way through the wood was as clear as a human voice.

When his press started, it was the crescendo of the visit.
