Jacqueline Humphries @ Modern Art

2 October 2018 - 10 November 2018

For three decades, Jacqueline Humphries’ work has grappled with critical questions about contemporary abstract painting in a visual culture that is increasingly influenced by screens and technology. Testing the limits of her medium, her work frequently turns in on its own making; scraping back to reveal alternative roads of enquiry. The tension between erasing all trace of the hand and reinstating it through mechanical means points towards questions about digital appropriation and analogue memory. This contrast in form echoes elsewhere in Humphries’ practice, with precision meeting accident and consideration countering intuition. The artist pursues these possibilities by playing often with colour, light and gesture through such varied mediums as stencilled grids, black lighting, and silver paint.
