Shara Hughes

This summer, in a secluded summer house on the coast of Denmark, I met Shara and her art.

I think her art is a really raw display of emotions. She uses a plethora of complex, very colourful patterns and lots of symbolism. I feel like every piece is a huge enigma and somehow I think the emotions she wants to convey are so personal that she ended up making the puzzles unsolvable. But I can definitely sense that the answers, truths, and secrets are lurking in there.

Here are my favourite pieces.

"I'm Tired, Harbor Me"

"What a Web You Weave"

She just launched a website, so be sure to check it out for the rest of her work.
