"Lily" by Jenny Humphreys

from Tom Murdock...
I just wrote a very amateurish blog about Jenny's work on our travel diary: http://appalachianthree.tumblr.com

Tom: Seeing Provincetown. This is a place where the residents appear to constantly re-envision their home. The art is often about the place or about how they are trying to see the place in the spectacular light of the cape. The town has plenty of central tenets: a place of beginnings; pirates; brave risktaking in art, love, community, natural beauty; Portuguese fishing traditions; and often punishing weather. Twenty years ago, most of the popular art in town appeared to be variations on Paul Resika: a guy who could make an old pier look like a radiant surprise in color. Today I'm challenged to see popular paintings that don't stem from Pat de Groot's horizon studies. I thought she was a little crazy, obsessing over literally hundreds of small canvasses, trying to capture the colors of the sky and the ocean above and below a thin horizon, but that is where landscape and abstract painting must be meeting. (When Faith and I got married at the Fine Arts Work Center, she gave us one of those paintings which I treasure along with a Bowen sketch and a Shahn print). These days, I tend to love the artists that Ewa Nogiec picks for her gallery. I think about Jenny Humphreys' work through time: when she first arrived in Ptown she was molding candy manniken legs; then she made gorgeous fluffy bed-and-breakfast quilts with obscene words stitched across them; next I remember walking through the beach forest to view a wedding dress married to branches rising and falling with the winds; now she paints lush scenes where the silhouettes of paddle boarders (newest wave-riding in a town that loves beaches, muscles and fads) encounter gigantic primal rocks or skulls. I don't have the skill to unravel Jenny's work, but it makes me feel (like I did with the Chagall exhibit at the NYC Jewish Museum this fall) that she is working with a vocabulary of ocean, sex, Pilgrims, and Poe to say something about this place at this time in a way that is far riskier and dreamy than the safe variations of those horizon lines. Maybe she is calling us out to say that we have always been Pilgrim-prudish, that Poe and whatever is in his heart has always been buried under Plymouth Rock, that our green-rabbit-envy brain is always digesting something indigestible.
