Scene 186 - Pool

About

Scene 186 by Martha Hughes is a Pool scene painting. It is acrylic on canvas, 36x36. The bold colors and clean lines create an imagined landscape scene. Martha Hughes lives and works in Marfa, Texas. She received her B.F.A. from the University of Texas, Austin. This is part of her new Pool paintings within her Scenes series. According to Hughes, “Paintings in the Scenes series are of everyday, prosaic interiors and landscapes, with ambiguous, vertiginous spaces that reflect my sense of never being quite at home in the world. The look of this series was initially partly influenced by children’s tempera paintings – colorful, flat and simple. I often find inspiration from glossy interior design and architecture magazines, with their carefully staged photographs of impossibly pristine, beautiful houses, gardens, and pools.” Inspired by the artwork of children and outsider artists, Hughes paints grid-based scenes using reductive, geometric blocks of color. She frequently depicts unsettling or impossible spaces. Her “Scenes” and “Setups” series, alluring in their ambiguity and bold use of color, reveal the contours of subtly vertiginous interior spaces. Hughes is also interested in the ways objects can convey atmosphere and mood. She has been exhibiting her artwork since 1987 throughout the US including a recent exhibit group show in Sante Fe featuring her work alongside, Chuck Close, Agnes Martin, and Sol LeWitt. Her work is in private collections throughout the US.
