After more than 20 years as a New York City based fashion designer, Ridgewood-based Jess Humphrey recently shifted her focus to collage and glasswork. Her work is an exploration of color and form, and through a meditative process, she creates automatic renderings of her subconscious, uncovering reoccurring themes shame and trauma. Inspiration stems from the Surrealists such as Magritte and Max Ernst, Color Masters Ellsworth Kelly and Josef Albers, Bauhaus’ Moholy-Nagy and the Post-Modern Glasswork of Ettore Sottsass.

Her creative pursuits go back to childhood, when she first became interested in art and photography.  Humphrey attended a visual arts high school in Virginia, before moving to Washington DC, and eventually Boston, where she photographed the 90s East Coast punk scene. After moving to NY in the early 00s, she began a career creating collections for renowned fashion brands like Ralph Lauren, Elizabeth and James, Denim & Supply, Converse, and her own menswear company, Victory Press.
