Andrew Russeth, Shara Hughes: Day by Day by Day, Esslingen 2020, p. 121, illustrated in colour
Shara Hughes is one of the remarkable emerging artists on the current market. The central subject in her work is her unique presentation of contemporary landscape, flowers and garden in a strong and bright colour palette created in a fascinating conjunction of nature, abstraction, a psychedelic representation of a surreal and imaginary reality. The present work, Get It Right 2, is a striking example of the artist’s acclaimed landscape vision. Appearing to be of a classic landscape composition with threes and fields of flowers, the elaborated brush strokes in juxtaposition with the rich almost supernatural colours draw the viewer into a fantastic world when experiencing the work.
“I think painting provides an escape from wherever you are, no matter what. Even for the viewer. I don’t think I’m painting landscapes wishing I was in nature per se, but it’s more a way to connect with something within me that I want to see visually expressed.” Shara Hughes quoted in: “Shara Hughes – Interview: ‘I wanted the works to feel like figures you would visit at a church, something divine,’” in Studio International, 17 May 2021 (online)
