At Deep Dive, opening reception for New York-based artist Beth Humphrey with her new show, “Seekers”. Humphrey began this work at Deep Dive Art Projects in January 2024, creating monoprints and Tetrapak prints in an intense five day residency. Ironically, she had learned this technique from Taiwanese artist Pei-Hsuan Wu, a Taipei x CLE Exchange Artist at Zygote Press in 2023, who then visited the Department of Regional Art Workers (The D.R.A.W.), where Humphrey is on the staff in Fall, 2023. It was there, at the Neighborhood Print Shop, that Humphrey continued to work in 2024 on the pieces for “Seekers.” The Printmaking world is indeed its own ecosystem.

Humphrey’s bright and innovative mixed media collage works were shown last at the Deep End in Summer, 2022. These new artworks use printmaking, collage, drawing, and other media create amorphous beings or objects, possibly a bit of both intertwined. In her exploration into a searching for meaning in the unknown (space, death, time), she has found it to feel like everywhere and everything. Humphrey says, “My current work is about creating sentinels or portals to organize this act of seeking meaning, objects with patterns, placed together with the information I am trying to make sense of. Markers and placeholders in the mystery.”

Beth Humphrey is an nationally exhibited artist and educator living in the Catskill Mountains of New York, although her parents are both from Ohio, (Akron and Youngstown). She studied printmaking at Minneapolis College of Art and Design and surface design at Oregon College of Art and Craft. She has had residencies at the Ucross Foundation and the Penland School as well as at Deep Dive Art Projects. In addition to private collections, Humphrey’s work has been acquired by Cleveland Clinic and MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland. The Deep End, 423 East 156th Street.
