“I’m Glad We Had This Conversation,” an exhibition of paintings by David Humphrey, is at Fredericks & Freiser Gallery through February 25. “I like the patched-together quality,” he told Hyperallergic in 2014. “That is what it’s like to be a person in the world. We evolve out of dependencies and contexts. We are, in some ways, patch jobs: fragments that constitute a whole with some effort. There is an echo of that theme in the painting language, the means. I am always trying to pulverize the image. I like the idea that the painting is at risk of falling apart.”
