Study (Romantic Gestures) 15

Print
Sale price$ 1,500

Two color monotype. Custom raw maple frame, UV glass.

Humphreys’ latest series is Romantic Gestures, a collection of monoprints at large and small scale, printed in two to three colors. Her method involves arranging pieces of collected dryer lint, embracing the way it naturally falls apart and lands on the inked plate, and becomes reanimated through the press. In so doing, she steers her practice to a freer, chance operation: the compositions are confetti-like, with forms dancing down the page to evoke strewn flower petals. Closer inspection reveals the contour of stray hairs, dust and fingernail clippings encapsulated in her arrangements, evincing the “dirty work” that is doing the family’s laundry. Through her continued impulse to examine and ritualize repetitive domestic work, she transforms an act of service into a suspended moment of beauty.

Shown pictured with other works from this series, all artworks sold separately.
