At first glance, Shara Hughes's colourful and extravagant landscapes are full of everything we love in famous paintings: the palette of Henri Matisse, the stylistic inventiveness of Edvard Munch, the painterly gestures of Philip Guston, the brushwork of van Gogh. She quotes this masculine landscape tradition deliberately and unabashedly. This monograph is the first to present a comprehensive overview of Shara Hughes's work.
Shara Hughes graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design and later attended the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture in Madison, ME. She has had solo shows at the Arts Club, London, the Metropolitan Opera, New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, Atlanta. In 2017, she participated in the Whitney Biennial, New York.
