David Humphrey, As One


My paintings often mix a range of genre and methods (abstraction, direct observation, pop-surrealism, and photo-derived representation) to the paradoxical challenge of making works with authority and power committed to questioning authority and power. As One considers the fusion of riot police and demonstrators into a single liquified blob.
