Essay by Ann Goldstein

The copperplate etchings that fill this small monograph by the Los Angeles based artist Jennifer Bornstein read deceptively simply--they echo sketches on loose leaf. "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."
