“Black-light art is a cliché. I like to think I could redeem it somehow, make it fresh again,” Jacqueline Humphries says of her work. Her latest output is indeed ingenious, as well as eye-catching. Fittingly on view at the Dan Flavin Art Institute in Bridgehampton, New York, until May 2020, the 10 pieces in the self-titled exhibition mix resin with black-light-fluorescing pigments, yielding a glowing, ultra-saturated result. Some were produced via 3-D printing techniques and carry traces of their sources, like the green driftwood floating on the purple ground of Painting.
