Art In America

David Humphrey

at Fredericks & Freiser,

536 W 24th St  New York, NY 10011

David Humphrey's new paintings represent something of a breakthrough for the New York artist. His colorful, Pop-art-related figurative compositions are here tempered by an unexpected painterly aplomb that winks at gestural abstraction. Yet the best of his wacky compositions on view, such as Cement Truck and At the Door, maintain a delicate and impressive balance between abstract and figurative elements.
