Jacqueline Humphries

Text by Angus Cook, Suzanne Hudson, David Joselit.

"Junker" (2010) is reproduced from <I>Jacqueline Humphries</I>.Over the course of her three-decade career, American painter Jacqueline Humphries (born 1960) has committed to abstraction at its extreme. In the mid-2000s, Humphries began experimenting with reflective silver paint on canvas, a feature that has since become a signature of her work. Humphries' iridescent surfaces create an unsettling relationship between the viewer and the painting, constantly shifting according to movement and time. Registering the colors and tones of the environments around them, the paintings engage in a mysterious play of shadows and light, suggestion and intimation. This distinctive monograph--the first to collect Humphries' silver paintings in one volume--illustrates over 70 works, reproducing their luminous surfaces using a technique that lays conventional ink over an Iriodin silkscreened varnish. With essays by David Joselit, Suzanne Hudson and Angus Cooke, the book situates Humphries within a generational discourse as well as a broader art-historical context.

In the new monograph from Walther König, David Joselit writes, "Jacqueline Humphries’ silver paintings manifest this dynamic of temporal contraction and dilation as a push-pull toward and away from the paintings themselves. The reflective surfaces of her nearly square canvases give them the flavor of postindustrial infrastructural components like solar panels or the beautiful silvery surfaces of Apple iPads writ large. But whatever their seductive qualities, these reflective works throw the viewer back out into her own space. I think this is what Humphries meant when she remarked in a 2012 interview, 'I’m continuing to work with the metallic paint that I’ve been involved with for some years now where the light isn’t in the painting, but remains outside it... And I ask myself questions: Does painting even have an interior? Is it all exterior? Can you enter it, or are you just up against a wall?'" Featured image is "Untitled" (2010). continue to blog
