Produced in conjunction with the exhibition The Path, The Divide | Brynn Higgins-Stirrup, curated by Oana Tanase. A signature card is included with the print, suitable for mounting on the back of a frame. Fascinated by the ways in which we confront and reconcile intuitive inquiry with organized thought and form, Higgins-Stirrup has developed a distinctive visual language and practice that revolves around learning systems, geometry, mapping, and writing. Seducing the viewer through technical exactitude and material subtlety, her artworks speak of the space that lies between knowledge and truth, information and meaning.
