Natalya Hughes

12th - 28th April

WHEN : 12th – 28th April
WHERE : Milani Gallery

Hughes’s work combines what are usually considered to be opposing modes in visual culture: a seductive aesthetic and aberrant figuration.

“I think about these modes in terms of the ‘grotesque’. In my images, unfamiliar ‘bodies’ bulge with misplaced and enlarged limbs. They are broken by the space that surrounds them and sometimes left seeping at their openings. Such figures, however, are made up of mostly decorative forms: through the folds of garments and an excessive ornamentation. My interest is in producing images both compelling and destabilising through this combinatory logic of form”
