Richard Hughes was born in 1974 in Birmingham. He lives and works in London.
Richard Hughes makes intricate illusions that trick the viewer and expose the artifice of their making. His sculptures and installations resemble the aftermath of good times gone sour. Bags of jettisoned old clothes, rising damp, burnt-out hedges, bottles of urine, and dog-end residues – are all used to create elaborate histories. Hughes revisits specific cultural moments, as his practice taps into shared memories and bittersweet feelings often reserved for things past their best.
