“Operation Chromebody,” showcases the multifaceted process of printmaking through a monochromatic lens. In this online exhibition, relationships are made between the muted works of four Highpoint Edition artists. These works showcase a richly developed visual language, ranging from Mungo Thomson’s blind embossments to Alexa Horochowski’s Vortex drawings. Each artist’s work challenges concepts of identity addressing one’s daily assumptions through considered printmaking processes.
About Mungo Thomson "Pocket Universes" : In Mungo Thomson’s latest collaboration with Highpoint Editions, Pocket Universe, the Los Angeles-based conceptual artist focuses on the overlooked and the everyday, and invites the viewer to contemplate what is hiding in plain sight.
About Alexa Horochowski's "Vortex Drawings" : Minneapolis artist Alexa Horochowski worked with the Highpoint printing staff during the summer of 2016 to create her first Highpoint Editions body of 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.’
About Do Ho Suh's lithograph's : Highpoint Editions is thrilled to present our first two lithographs created in collaboration with visiting artist Do Ho Suh: Karma Juggler and Untitled. Through his artistic practice, Suh contemplates fundamental questions which often prove to be the most difficult to answer: who are we, where are we from, and where are we going? The artist’s decidedly karmic approach suggests human interconnectedness and individual identity are linked both spatially and temporally.
About Willie Cole's "Beauties" : Highpoint Editions is thrilled to present a powerfully significant body of work by renowned artist Willie Cole. The project echoes Cole’s explorations in other media, while allowing him to delve deeper. The editions include 27 “Beauties:” delicate intaglio/relief prints of full-scale ironing boards, as well as several series of small and large screen printed “virgins:” iron patterns in a vibrant range of colors. A large woodcut relief print, Sole Sisters, rounds out the group and extends the narrative.
