Highpoint is proud to present Todd Norsten: N O W H E R E, a survey of unique mono-prints Norsten created at the Highpoint Editions studio over the past year. Although graphically minimal and seemingly direct, observation and thought allow the viewer to peel back the layers of meaning created by the physical artistic materials, the artist’s own experiences and his razor-sharp wit. The rapid nature of monoprinting encouraged Norsten to experiment with the appropriated text and culturally recognizable imagery. He revisits subject matter with varied approaches throughout the creation of these prints, crafting an interconnected and dynamic body of work.
Norsten is a perpetual student and observer of all types of graphic mediums and has a rich knowledge of artists who have come before him. In all aspects of his artistic practice, he places equally high value on fine art and everyday human expression. Through his travels, which take him to anywhere from rural Nebraska to the center of Rome, Norsten notices something that most of us overlook altogether: the handmade sign.
