Photogravure with aqauatint
Barr’s video-works often used black and white and worked from a singular viewpoint, transforming common objects and everyday situations into intensely focused paeans of stylistic beauty. This backlit image of a frog in a swimming pool at night is rendered in a photogravure with aquatint. Barr captured the image from a video shot in Hawaii, which he first showed projected in a 28-inch square on a 40-foot wall at the Sikkema Jenkins Gallery in New York.
