“A flock of starlings, as much one thing as a rock. One will moved above the trees the liquid and hesitant drift." ~John Updike, The Great Scarf of Birds

From the petals of a flower to an undulating school of fish, nature transfixes us with its intricate patterns of beauty. That an organized whole is indeed more than the sum of its parts inspires poets as well as visual artists, and in Isabelle Coppinger's work, she employs clay to capture this enigmatic order found in flora and fauna. Immersing the viewer in delicate, intricate arrangements, she provides us with a meditation on the inherent beauty in our natural world.

To the cut

Highpoint artwork will be available for purchase with the artist taking 75 percent of the sale, as the Highpoint believes the time and materials an artist puts into their work warrants compensation beyond current industry standards.

Understanding that buying art can be a major purchase for most people, the Highpoint encourages people interested in work to approach us with inquiries so that we may better assist them. For art curated by other galleries, contact them for more information.

WHAT WE MAY BE

Mona Dworkin  Rise Speak Repeat - what we may be painting

Mixed media works by Mona Dworkin

in the East Wing Gallery

February 28th, 2020
through October 31st, 2020

Mona Dworkin's mixed media portraits explore essence, vulnerability and expectations in a new world where "we know what we are, but not what we may be." Identity has become untethered from traditional notions in the wake of postmodernity, and it is in this area where Dworkin focuses her artistic endeavors.

Elements of race, gender and relationships are portrayed as fragmented and sometimes disparate with recognizable eyes staring back at the viewer. As the title of the show references a quote from Hamlet, this body of work similarly echoes themes of uncertainty pervasive in the play.

Her work reflects the current social climate where we are acutely aware of, and often tormented by, our present selves and begs us to consider the vast and unknowable potentials of our futures.
