Joshua Highter's process-driven, abstract paintings focus on the intersection between observation and memory. Higher utilizes drawing, painting, and printmaking to create a richly textured surface where the visual space plays with tensions between the familiar, observed experiences, and the foreign, distant memories that are remnants these experiences.
Higher earned his MFA in painting from Indiana University, Bloomington and currently lives in Takoma Park, Maryland. Prior to moving to the DC metro area, the artist lived in Berkeley, California and spent three years teaching drawing and painting as a visiting lecturer at the University of California, Davis. Prior to moving to California, he taught drawing and painting at Herron College of Art and Design in Indianapolis. He has been an artist in residence at Root Division, in San Francisco, and at the Vermont Studio Center. He currently spends his days as “Dad,” exploring with his son Aurele, and teaches at the University of the District of Columbia (UDC), Smithsonian Associates, and at the George Washington Corcoran Center for the Arts. Higher is originally from Vermont and will always call the Green Mountains “home”.
