Highpoint Presents Jungle Press Editions, an exhibition celebrating the breadth of work, techniques and styles by fifteen artists created in collaboration with Jungle Press out of Brooklyn, NY.
Highpoint is thrilled to present a selection of works published by Jungle Press Editions of Brooklyn, NY. The exhibition features an array of vibrant and experimental prints by fifteen artists, including Tunji Adeniyi-Jones, Ellen Berkenblit, Jennifer Mack-Watkins, Nicole Eisenman, Sam Messer, and others.
The artists have collaborated throughout Jungle Press’ history with Director and Master Printer, Andrew Mockler, to create new work utilizing their themes and mark making styles, transformed into print medium. This exhibition showcases the breadth of work created at Jungle Press Editions and the diverse and bold styles of printmaking by the artists.
In 2022, Jungle Press worked with printmaker Jennifer Mack-Watkins to create two new lithographs continuing her exploration of themes of racial identity and history, injustice, and societal conformity related to gender roles. Space Boy and Space Girl will be featured in the exhibition alongside her earlier works with Jungle Press.
Painter Sam Messer's work from a 2020 collaboration with Jungle Press will also be included. These playful portraits of Olympia typewriters, an ongoing subject for Messer, using multiple techniques and handmade additions in these variable editioned works.
Tunji Adeniyi-Jones’s paintings emerge from a perspective of what the artist describes as ‘cultural addition, combination and collaboration’. Born and educated in the UK and now living and working in the USA, his practice is inspired by the ancient history of West Africa and its attendant mythology, and by his Yoruba heritage.
