Press Release

David Humphrey

Work and Play

October 9 – November 8, 2014

Opening reception: Thursday, October 9, 6-8PM

 

 

Fredericks & Freiser is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by David Humphrey. The artist will exhibit painting and sculpture that continue his method of developing images from the public realm into imaginative hybrids of the social and eccentrically individual, the historic and vividly contemporary.

 

Work and Play elaborates themes of looking, making, and imagining. Humphrey’s subjects disassemble and reorganize themselves within his psychologically charged spaces. Spontaneous gestures cavort with photo-mechanically derived images, promiscuous abstract shapes and animals to tell stories of consciousness set loose into a world of objects and resistant matter.
