Ink and deboss on paper | 2019

For Humphreys these works began as color studies. Relying on simple shapes and small canvases allowed her to explore color immediately: the color of the paper, the ink and the layering of the two. Here is where she discovered the transcendence of color. It can lead to a memory, a feeling, a thought, a place, a dream. As the color studies multiply, flip and sit side by side, the simple shapes get more complex.

For the tessellated works, each paper tile has been individually torn, dyed and printed to become part of a whole. These works come with maps prompting different variations on how the tiles can live together. They are meant to be played with, arranged and rearranged until a combination appears that makes the viewer feel. The final work of art becomes a collaboration.
