What do a juicy fillet of salmon and a body half-submerged in bath water have in common? Through soft-colored, naturalistic paintings, Amy explores the beauty of female bodies in everyday life - the beauty of vulnerable, soft flesh itself safe from the glare of cameras and gloss of magazine pages.
The painter Amy Hughs works with muted colors and fleshy oil. Using her own body as a vessel, she explores women’s experience in this society and time. Coming from Liverpool, England, the artist spent her years growing up between Cheshire, UK and Moscow, Russia. She now resides in Brooklyn, New York.
