CONDO NEW YORK
Tom Humphreys’ recent figurative sculptures combine emotive postures with colored surfaces. Some works are constructed in a fine steel mesh, deliberately left in what appears to be an armature stage or are bubble-like, suggesting transparency. Often with visible scale shifts and distortion, these sculptures connect to the room in various ways without supports: leaning, reclining, or sealed within glass vitrines. Lightweight building materials, including mesh and aluminum foil, are employed to give a surface to which artist’s color is applied.
