New Torn Collage 10, 2022, Framed

Skylar Hughes works primarily as a painter but frequently returns to collage as an exercise that allows immediacy. These split images act as visual frameworks for explorations on the concurrent nature of structure and temporality, fullness and emptiness, awareness and unconsciousness, limitation and possibility, the present and what’s next.
