• That High School Trip, Oil, acrylic, chalk and airbrush on canvas, 101.6 x 76.2cm, 2015
    Shara Hughes


샤라 휴즈는 변화무쌍한 자연의 풍경부터 섬세한 실내 장면까지 다양한 소재들을 밝고 활기찬 색채를 사용해 그려낸다. “자연은 아주 다양한 방식으로 감정을 반영한다 고백한 있는 휴즈의 작품은 추상적이기도 하고 심리적으로 충만하다. 2017 휘트니 비엔날레에 참가한 이후로 그녀는 평론가와 미술 애호가로부터 폭발적인 찬사를 받으며, 새로운 세대의 젊은 작가로서 영향력을 행사하고 있다. 


A bright, exuberant palette defines Shara Hughes’s painting practice, which ranges from kaleidoscopic landscapes to intricately detailed interior scenes. The work of Hughes who has confessed that “I think that nature reflects emotions in so many ways”, is known for her psychologically-charged tableaus that border on abstraction. After her participation in the 2017 Whitney Biennial, she has received favorable reviews from critics and public steadily, and is quickly becoming a formidable force within a new generation of forward-thinking painters.
