Museum of Contemporary Art, 2005 - Art - 63 pages
The copperplate etchings that fill this small monograph by the Los Angeles based artist Jennifer Bornstein read deceptively simply--they echo sketches on looseleaf. "Marvin with His Skateboard" shows its title subject, defiant, in a "Smiths" T-shirt with its lettering crossed out and "Ramones" written in. Other young models do homework, play guitar, and model even wittier T-shirts. But it's not as direct as all that: A few pages on, the slackers are interleaved with "Margaret Mead in Authentic Samoan Dress," and then later "Buster Keaton on Crutches." Bornstein was born in Seattle, Washington, in 1970. She has had recent solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Blum & Poe, Santa Monica; and Leo Koenig, Inc., New York.
