Dye Study Ghost, Marigold, Indigo & Iron
Ink on Paper | 2022
Humphreys’ geometric gradient prints reflect her challenge to the confines of traditional printmaking though her ongoing experimentation with process and material. After each print she creates, she produces another from the residual ink left on the printmaking plate. This process of absorbing the remaining ink creates a “ghost” print, resulting in softer, more subtle hues and varied texture. Humphreys’ ghosts can be unpredictable and imperfect, reflecting her curiosities about the technique and how the printmaking process itself dictates the final result.
