Emblematic of Jacqueline Humphries’ exploration of abstract painting over three decades, this work is one of the first in her series of “silver paintings" initiated in the mid-2000s.

For the series, she developed a new language using metallic silver paint, which became her signature. Created by mixing paint with silver industrial lacquer, it creates an immersive space in which the surface becomes a sensitive epidermis that reacts to natural light and the movements of the viewer.
