Some frames from a recent roll of film. These have been scanned from negatives with my newly acquired Conon CS9000F scanner which I am so far immensely pleased with. It should eventually mean a saving on my film processing costs and allow me more freedom with some other projects I have in the works.

My most recently completed tapestry. An experiment in finding the balance between the time spent making and the clarity and quality of the resultant work. Few images of interest to me work at this resolution, usually losing their link to realism and their atmosphere when reduced so dramatically.
A much larger tapestry is hovering near completion with only two square inches remaining unfinished. An order of yarn from the UK will be its savior, hopefully soon.

The gift of a classic Polaroid camera for Christmas has provided the impetuous for using more impossible project film. The high heat of the day seems to be the cause of the sepia tones. These images are developing towards a small series of photographs.

This book has been completed thanks to the kind assistance of my father Denis Hughes of MyChoice laser engraving. I have had this book in the works for too long now, it has finally been pulled together with stitching and is complete. The images are relief prints from laser engraved lino blocks with Australian red ochre pigment coating the inside of each folded page. The pages are bound up with engraved kangaroo leather recalling a scorched aerial view of the landscape contained within.

Thinking about the drawing as an object, a three dimensional piece of paper and lead to be held. Folded and smeared the drawing will change state degrading to destruction. I want to watch drawings move, I may need to use some video.

These etchings are a series I made in 2005. I can not emphasis enough that these pictures are not about horses just as my header is not. There is much more to be considered such as the interplay between the geometric and the textural and the boundaries between suburbia, industry and the australian outback. These images also set me off on a journey into the black void and it’s place in suburbia which captivated me for a year and a half. The top image is one that years latter I still go back to in an attempt to understand what it is I wish to achieve.

my first work to be shown for many a year this work was accepted for the 2009 williamstown festival contemporary art prize. It is graphite on paper and of a very small scale (16 cm x ?). An intricate rubble along the preston train tracks, the sharpness of the trailer drew my eye.
