Jacqueline Humphries is a master painter, and no technique or combination of techniques, is safe from her steady utilization. In the past, major bodies of her work have employed heavy usage of reflective silver paint, while other paintings utilizing fluorescent pigments have been exhibited illuminated entirely by black light (as they were created in the studio.) With this silkscreen, Humphries references the syntax of painting with a wide, rigid support within which paint or gesso partially prepares a surface – and leaves portions notably vacant. A small face – slightly sinister, but with the emoji-cuteness we’ve become accustomed to – sits atop and begs for our attention.
