The Creative Process
The Original Painting...
All of Benson-Cobb's artwork begins as an original (there is only one). Most originals are created with acrylic paint on canvas or board. When available, original paintings are offered for sale through the artist's studio and through Neiman Marcus.
Digitizing + Final Proofs
The original painting is digitally captured, test prints are ran several times for color adjustments and artist approval.
The artwork is cataloged and offered with standard size options based on the final artist's proofs.
Original Artwork | There is only one...
Benson-Cobb's original artwork is generally painted on canvas or board. Benson-Cobb's style is fluid, generally flat in texture. Commissioned work is welcomed. Originals are sold directly from the studio and exclusively through Neiman Marcus.
The Mixed Media Canvas
In the traditional art world, the term "mixed media" is generally used to describe artworks composed from a combination of different media or materials. Benson-Cobb has embraced the verbiage to categorize her custom, embellished work. Benson-Cobb's "combination of materials" is simply her own original painting reproduced as a giclée canvas (gallery quality, water-based inks), combined with additional paint layers inherent to the original work. The term perfectly describes the process for buyers.
The Mixed Media Original or "MMO" can also be more extensive with unique sizing such as diptychs or triptychs. The end result is a one-of-a-kind version of the artwork, signed and accompanied with a certificate of authenticity.
Canvas Reproductions are printed using solvent ink technology. The ink is sealed at the time of printing. The solvent canvas is a very durable, budget friendly alternative to the Mixed Media option. Reproductions are limited in sizes, not all artwork is available as a reproduction through the studio.
Hand-Torn Paper:The cold-press paper prints are hand-torn for an irregular edge, floated on linen mat board, initialed, and mounted under clear 1/8" acrylic.
Archival Linen: The artwork is digitally printed on linen, hand-washed and frayed, mounted on linen mat board, and framed under 1/8" clear acrylic. The end result is a museum quality textile. Each artwork is uniquely one-of-a-kind and accompanied with a certificate of authenticity. Archival linens are listed as they become available.
