British artist Jonathan Monk replays, recasts and re-examines seminal works of Conceptual and Minimal art by variously witty, ingenious and irreverent means. Through wall paintings, monochromes, ephemeral sculpture and photography he reflects on the tendency of contemporary art to devour references, simultaneously paying homage to figures such as Sol LeWitt, Ed Ruscha, Bruce Nauman and Lawrence Weiner, while demystifying the creative process.

This limited edition print was produced for 'Portrait (for a Screenplay) of Beth Harmon,' at Tenderpixel. 'The Queen’s Gambit,' a novel by author Walter Tevis, was the starting point of this unique project. The novel followed the life of Beth Harmon, an orphan who is discovered to be a chess prodigy, at the age of 8, through to adulthood.

As part of the project artists were invited to expand the character of Beth. Each work in the show began to set the scene, but not elucidate as a blurb does.
