Prints by Julie Buffalohead
Highpoint is honored to present this group of ten captivating lithographs created in collaboration with artist Julie Buffalohead. A member of the Ponca tribe of Oklahoma and primarily known as a painter, Buffalohead’s prints call upon a personal iconography of anthropomorphized animal protagonists. Themes are drawn from Native American legend and history, politics, contemporary culture, power, parenting, stereotypes, and identity. These richly sensitive prints embody Highpoint’s commitment to the art of impeccable printmaking as well as Buffalohead’s aptitude for creating rich and mysterious pictorial narrative. In the artist’s words, these images harness “mythic power to cope with the perils of human experience.”
Entwined: New Prints by Julie Buffalohead will be will be on view in Highpoint’s main galleries through March 28, 2015. The exhibition features all ten prints developed over the last year.
