Prints by Jennifer Bornstein gathers together a body of work encompassing her latest projects in printmaking during a recent fellowship at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University.
These works are contextualized by earlier projects in drawing, film, and artist books that span the 1990s to the present. Known for her conceptual approach, Bornstein’s current works centering around prints and frottages weave together intricate background stories of family relations, feminist history, and material possession that are inscribed in wry yet complex understandings of technological presence and material trace. Generously illustrated with detailed images, the book also features an essay by Gloria Sutton and an interview between Bornstein and artist Matt Saunders.
