Bill Humphries is a highly talented person. Creating work from his studio, he makes colorful and evocative pieces that can only be produced by him. His latest work features food and pop elements, showcased in the exhibit entitled “YUM!”
He says, “There is some kind of narrative, especially in the collaged works. I’ll gravitate towards a strange image and juxtapose that with food, signage, and typography. I borrow from magazines and go on my own in terms of typography—that’s the perfect storm of what I do.”
“For me, art is my private therapy. I love that tactile feel of the rough canvas grain, charcoal pencil, or a brush. When you’re laying down paint, you can see the shadows and striations, and you have total control.”
YUM! takes place from June 1 to July 17, 2017 at the City Hall Art Gallery, 300 South Adams Street. It is free for everyone. Call 850-224-2500 for more information.
