Gretchen Bennett's Sketches of Kurt Cobain

Gretchen Bennett reimagines iconic images of Kurt Cobain in shadings of colored pencil for this drawing series entitled "Hello" (a nod to the chorus of "Smells Like Teen Spirit"). She took video footage from YouTube (including a memorial created by Krist Novoselic for MTV) and Gus Van Sant's Last Days, made slides of the images, then projected the slides onto her studio wall, where she traced out a series of light-saturated drawings.
