Untitled (Spotlights)

Highpoint Editions is thrilled to announce the release of Untitled (Spotlights), a stunning new pair of prints created in collaboration with New York-based artist Sarah Crowner.

The artist’s signature use of bold color and composition is on full display in these prints. Known for her vivid sewn paintings, Crowner’s work explores the nature of material and media, references art history, and plays with color and geometry. In her work at Highpoint, Crowner further explores these interests through printmaking techniques, juxtaposing and playing upon the opacity of screenprinted inks with the highly textured surfaces of inexpensive building materials rendered through relief printing and lithography.
