Born in Atlanta in 1981, Shara Hughes is a celebrated artist whose foundation was solidified at the Rhode Island School of Design, graduating in 2004. Hughes's work stands as a testament to her deep connection with the environment and her gift for blending reality with fantasy. Through a blend of Fauvist and Surrealist techniques, her landscapes become emotional terrains, where every hue and stroke emanates feelings and states of mind.

Renowned for her fearless use of colour and instinctual brushwork, Hughes transforms familiar landscapes into mesmerising realms of fantasy. Her artistry offers viewers not just a visual treat but an emotional voyage, challenging them to perceive the world beyond its apparent form.

One of Hughes's most captivating approaches is her departure from relying on photographs or direct observations from nature. Instead, she paints from imagination, memory, and emotion. This intentional choice results in landscapes that are deeply personal yet universally relatable. The intense hues, distorted perspectives, and juxtaposed forms echo sentiments of longing, confusion, joy, or introspection.

Her In Lieu of Flowers exhibition is a testament to the evolution of her style. Here, the landscapes, despite their otherworldly nature, evoked a deep sense of intimacy and vulnerability. Through bursts of colours, unpredictable shapes, and fluid lines, Hughes invites viewers into her emotional and psychological spaces, challenging them to navigate their own feelings and memories in tandem with the visual journey her canvases offer.

3. £1.3M for Shara Hughes's Ignoring the Present

Ignoring the Present (2018) reveals a mesmerising seascape framed by sinuous trees adorned with swirling and vibrant dots. Speaking on her own aesthetic, Hughes attempts to illustrate how intricate patterns mask underlying anxieties, resulting in compositions oscillating between beauty and the grotesque. Notably, Ignoring The Present exudes a subtle disquiet, initially veiled by radiant colours but unveiled upon closer scrutiny. As we immerse ourselves in the hypnotic world of coloured dots, we ponder the inherent dualities and uncertainties within the artwork. This visually stimulating and energetically abstract style resonates with Kusama's infinity compositions and realised a £1.3 million (with fees) at Sotheby's in March 2022.
