Galerie Eva Presenhuber is pleased to announce Day By Day By Day, the gallery’s third solo exhibition with the New York-based artist Shara Hughes.

In her new show, Hughes, who is well known for her works on canvas, presents drawings and monoprint drawings on paper accompanied by two paintings. While focused on drawing, Hughes continues developing her concept of psychological or invented landscapes, which rather than depicting real landscapes, unfold her inner self and radiate moods, emotional states, as well as thoughts on painting. She works intuitively using expressive brushstrokes and vibrant colors; nonetheless, her work is informed by a knowledge of art history and traces of fin de siècle styles such as Fauvism, Art Nouveau, or German Expressionism appear in her oeuvre.
