Sharon Butler blogs about Jacqueline Humphries at Greene Naftali, New York, on view through June 20, 2015.

Butler notes that "Digital screens, halftone dot patterns, emoticons, and other typographic symbols comprise the imagery in Jacqueline Humphries's new series of large-scale paintings... Once considered a Provisional painter, Humphries's new work is anything but contingent. Slick and resolved, the enormous canvases are layered with stencils and screen prints so as to create the densely comprehensive patterns that we have come to associate with digitized information."
