Vortex Drawings Project

Minneapolis artist Alexa Horochowski worked with the Highpoint printing staff the summer of 2016 to create her first HP work. The artist is known for her sculpture and installation art which ‘address the interrelatedness of natural forces (e.g., weather, erosion, plant life), globalization, culture, and matter.’

Niet Voor Kinderen

Highpoint is honored to present a group of prints resulting from Highpoint Editions’ collaboration with visiting artist Jay Heikes. During the course of Heikes’ project with Highpoint, he explored the idea of the exquisite corpse– a surrealist parlor game–through cyanotype, lithography, and screenprinting. His explorations in printmaking led him from lithography and screenprinting to working by hand with asphaltum, a medium typically applied as a protective coating on etching plates. The resulting prints typify Heikes’ interest in pushing the physical and evocative properties of materials, using them in new and visually powerful ways.

The Forest and Human Behavior

Highpoint Editions announces the release of two new prints resulting from a recent collaboration with Los Angeles-based artist Mungo Thomson. Thomson’s work is deeply rooted in the legacy of Conceptual art and often employs a strong connection between language and image. His latest project with highpoint is no exception. Based on Time-Life ® books, a popular series of general interest volumes published in the sixties and seventies, the prints focus on two subject areas within the series: Human Behavior (published in 1976) and the Nature Library (published in 1961).
