JACQUELINE HUMPHRIES. Koenig Books, London, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 190 pp. with 96 ills. (71 col.). 27 x 26 cm. ISBN 9783863355098 In English.
Publisher's description: Over the course of her three-decade career, American painter Jacqueline Humphries (born 1960) has committed to abstraction at its extreme. In the mid-2000s, Humphries began experimenting with reflective silver paint on canvas, a feature that has since become a signature of her work. Humphries' iridescent surfaces create an unsettling relationship between the viewer and the painting, constantly shifting according to movement and time. Registering the colors and tones of the environments around them, the paintings engage in a mysterious play of shadows and light, suggestion and intimation. This distinctive monograph -- the first to collect Humphries' silver paintings in one volume -- illustrates over 70 works, reproducing their luminous surfaces using a technique that lays conventional ink over an Iriodin silkscreened varnish. With essays by David Joselit, Suzanne Hudson and Angus Cooke, the book situates Humphries within a generational discourse as well as a broader art-historical context.
