Burn Your Bra

Work on Paper
Sale price$ 4,000

Blind emboss on found paper Mounted on linen in custom acrylic frame

These embossed works are the last of an edition of three from Humphreys’ first solo exhibition at Paul Loya Gallery in Los Angeles in 2015. They are printed on found handmade paper and represented milestone pieces for the artist—it was her first use of handmade paper and the depth really excited her, so it’s understandable she cherished them for a while before releasing them for purchase. The three works are from a period of making where Humphreys was developing a lot of iconography. Each one is made from filling one giant icon with many small ones and the name reveals what you see as you get closer: Flower Power, Love Struck, Burn Your Bra.

Size: 34 x 26 inches
Custom Framing Included

“Through her continued impulse to examine and ritualize repetitive domestic work, she transforms an act of service into a suspended moment of beauty.”
