Caleb De Jong reviews an exhibition of new paintings by Jacqueline Humphries at Greene Naftali, New York, on view through April 28, 2012.

De Jong writes: "Splayed outwards, Humphries centripetal compositions reference nature in their all over, structurally organic chemistry. Lacking clear chromatic referents to nature, Humphries' paintings instead operate independently of a clear representational imperative. Stark, bold and clear, Humphries' paintings sponsor the experience of the changeable conditions of nature, and perception itself."
