I really enjoy the monoprints of artist Leon Benn. A recent graduate of UCLA's MFA, he makes quite nice paintings too, but I think the monoprints deserve their own look.
I would love to see them in person, but through these well shot photographs, a real sense of the materials still comes through. The delicacy of the paper, the richness of its color and the plate's indentation all aid a considered final print. The mark and color of each feel like deliberate decisions with just enough room for process to guide the whole thing. Beautifully done.
