An exhibition of recent works on gesso and paper
Andrea Humphries still life images are a collection of distilled forms, drawn from the simple, domestic location in and around her own house and garden. Starting with sketches and studies, the paintings develop into highly designed arrangements between the object and its setting. Placed in flat open spaces designed to push and pull the visual plane; platonic, familiar shapes become altered in scale. A plain, ordinary jug becomes chiselled and monumental, and simple recognizable outlines are endowed with a presence beyond their everyday, common use.
