The Watermill Gallery, Aberfeldy
9th July - 6th Sept 2016
The exhibition will centre on a series of etchings made in the past few years covering a wide range of subjects. Those inspired by landscape in the UK include works from the Cuckmere River in East Sussex, Dungeness in Kent, Stonehenge, Silbury and ancient sites in Orkney. Further afield are works derived from South France and Central and Southern Australia. There will also a series of prints inspired by T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets and suites of prints derived from certain objects in the collections of the British Museum, particularly the island cultures in the Pacific. Etching is central to Hughes’s recent printmaking—but the exhibition will also include some silkscreen prints from earlier periods.
