Martha Hughes
Scene 216 - Pool and Cabanas

2016

About

Martha Hughes lives and works in Marfa, Texas. She received her B.F.A. from the University of Texas, Austin. She has been exhibiting her artwork since 1987 throughout the US including a recent exhibit group show in Santa Fe featuring her work alongside, Chuck Close, Agnes Martin, and Sol LeWitt. 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. According to Hughes, "The look of this series was initially partly influenced by children’s tempera paintings, which are typically colorful, flat, and simple. I often find inspiration from glossy interior design and architecture magazines, with their strange, carefully staged photographs of impossibly pristine, impossibly beautiful houses, gardens, and pools." Her artwork is created in Acrylic on Wood Panel, 12x12 or Acrylic on Canvas 36x36 or 72x72.
