Utilizing the transformative properties of her signature metallic silver paint, Humphries reflective canvases suggest a cinematic space that engages with light and movement in real-time. The metered process through which the paintings reveal themselves, unfixed in a constant shift of light and shadow, creates a distanced tension recalling iconic tropes of Film Noir. Humphries silver screens spotlight the viewer within a theatrical field that rewards physical movement, a foil to our culture of increasingly passive visual reception of images as they rapidly flash by on glowing monitors.
