Highpoint Editions is delighted to announce its publication of new prints by artist Carlos Amorales. Based in Mexico City and well-known internationally, Amorales embraces a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach to creating his art. Through processes such as painting, performance, animation and design, he samples images from his Liquid Archive, a collection of drawings that he has assembled over the past decade. This digital archive contains more than 1,500 vector-based drawings, which depict everything from birds and wolves to airplanes and digitized paint drips. Amorales cultivates the replication and reconfiguration of his archive through collaborations with composers, animators, designers and other artists. While working with Highpoint Editions, this strategy led to the production of wonderful new prints.
