Something terrifying emerging from the anxious brushstrokes in 'Landscape Painting Now'

Shara Hughes’ “Tipsy” (2016) is reproduced from Landscape Painting Now, the summertime staff favorite from D.A.P. Publishing. Hughes’ worlds “are in perpetual flux,” Robert R. Shane writes, “as colorful forms morph into one another, an effect that echoes her improvisational and playful process and is reinforced by her collage-like combination of materials and techniques, including oil paint, dye, airbrushing and enamels.… The childlike quality of the mark-making underscores the sense of youthful imagination and spontaneity that Hughes achieves; yet, as in so much of her work, there is also the sense of something terrifying emerging from the anxious brushstrokes.”
