Modern Eden Gallery presents the gallery debut solo exhibition from Steven “Primary” Hughes. Primary Hughes is a freelance illustrator and Associate Professor of Illustration at Northern Michigan University. Hughes’ commercial clients include The New York Times, Creative Quarterly, American Greetings, while his fine art work has been exhibited at galleries and museums across the USA. Primary Hughes has been exhibiting artwork in group exhibitions at Modern Eden since 2015.

‘Emergent’ begins where a separation between elements ends. The formal transitions occurring to blend the feminine and curvi-linear subjects reveal similarities that imbue the human portraiture with corresponding layers of depth. Built upon the sometimes-blurred edges of distinction, the work strikes at a place between communication and ambiguity, where the viewer can feel a story beginning to coalesce.

Exhibition Dates: July 11–August 1, 2020
