Joshua Highter

Josh Highter is an artist whose work focuses on the intersection between observation and memory, utilizing the processes of drawing, painting, and printmaking. The spaces constructed play at the tension between the familiar, observed experiences and the foreign, distant memories that are what remain of these experiences once they are over. His paintings are process driven and the surface of the painting is of primary interest.

Josh is a painter and MFA graduate of Indiana University, Bloomington and is currently living in Washington, DC. For the past three years Josh was living in Berkeley, California where he served as a visiting lecturer teaching drawing and painting at the University of California, Davis and was a studio artist at Root Division, a visual arts non-profit. Prior to moving to California, he taught drawing and painting at Herron College of Art and Design in Indianapolis. Even though Josh has been transient, he is originally from Vermont and will always call the Green Mountains “home.”
