The publication includes images of Ian’s paintings spanning ten years, a foreword from art historian Peter Murray and an introduction by Nicholas Fox Weber of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation. A limited edition print of one of Ian’s watercolour paintings accompanies each book.
The book features portraits of the artist by notable photographer John Minihan in his studio on Heir Island, West Cork.
“His paintings are non-figurative, but instantly evoke memories and images of West Cork, with veils of grey rain sweeping in from the ocean and autumnal shades defying colour definition, in delicate variety and aptness. He works both within and without a consciousness of twentieth century painting, applying and plying paint with the same vigour and freedom as the abstract expressionists, or of the artists liberated into the artistic world of St.Ives, but at the same time Humphreys has found his own personal voice in West Cork in the early twenty-first century.” – Peter Murray
