Custom House Studios is hosting an exhibition of paintings by Jane Hughes entitled Architecture of Emotions which opened last week and will run every day until Sunday, June 10.
The exhibition consists of a series of new paintings exploring place and belonging. The title references our ability to be the architect of our own emotional landscapes.
The imagery is influenced by an interest in the psychology of displacement, memory and transition spaces. Through painterly processes the artworks delve into memory, not as something which is singular but rather a montage of memories as slices in time laid on top of one another.
This manifests itself in snippets of remote landscapes, fragmented interiors and mutating structures, through abstraction and suggestion, loose lines and melting boundaries, as a strategy to explore psychological states between connectedness and isolation, past and present, this world and other worlds.
