Clare Humphries is a highly respected printmaker. Her work explores the concept of the ‘aura’, or the sensation of distance brought near. By bringing opposing forces – close and far, and past and present – into uneasy proximity, Humphries brings her viewer alive.

‘The empty mirror’ conjures such a feeling. A mirror, bearer of our reflection, is rid of content. It becomes a paradox, a subversion of expectations, a haunting that recalls the concept of the soul. “Who’s the fairest of them all?” is left unanswered.

A lecturer at London’s Royal College of the Arts, Humphries is represented at the National Gallery of Australia, the Victoria and Albert Museum and State Library of Victoria. She is the recipient of accolades at the Fremantle Print Award, winner of the Ursula Hoff Institute Award and the John Denton Print Award.

For collectors of still lifes and contemporary prints, what do you see in ‘The empty mirror’?
