Natalya Hughes | Short Bio
Natalya Hughes’ multidisciplinary practice is concerned with decorative and ornamental traditions and their associations with the feminine, the body and excess. Through painting, textiles, sculpture and installation, her recent bodies of work investigate the relationship between Modernist painters and their anonymous women subjects. Using the life and work of major 20th century male artists, Willem de Kooning and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, as well archival case studies of Sigmund Freud, Hughes seeks to examine society’s ‘problems’ with women and the fraught associations that have ultimately determined them.
In 2022 Hughes was awarded the Michaela and Adrian Fini Fellowship by the Sheila Foundation to support the creation of a body of new work for the solo exhibition The Interior at the Institute of Modern Art (IMA). She was also the recipient of an Australia Council Project grant. This exhibition is scheduled to tour Australia until 2026.
