Modern Eden Gallery Press Release //

We are excited to present the second gallery solo exhibition by Primary Hughes, Re-Emergent. A follow up to 2020’s Emergent, Hughes continues his exploration where a separation between elements ends. The formal transitions occurring to blend the feminine and curvi-linear subjects reveal similarities that imbue the human portraiture with corresponding layers of depth. Built upon the sometimes-blurred edges of distinction, the work strikes at a place between communication and ambiguity, where the viewer can feel a story beginning to coalesce.

In Re-Emergent, colors dance, forms intertwine. The ‘Re-Emergent’ paintings of Primary Hughes continue to explore the liminal space between clarity and intrigue, beckoning viewers to enter into the narrative unfolding. Through layered transitions and melding of form, the feminine subjects are woven into abstraction. The interplay of color and shape creates a tapestry that unfurls its meaning long after the viewing.
