Eoin Mc Hugh Biography

Eoin Mc Hugh creates imagery that is hyper-real and, at times, hyper-surreal. A fascination with the psychology of images underpins his practice, together with a conceptual interest in investigating the space between the image, the object and the idea. Working with meticulously crafted painting, drawing and sculptural collage, his work apprehends the everyday world in terms of its potential for the uncanny or grotesque abnormality. Where there is intended ‘madness’ in his work, there is also rigorous method. The artist has sought to find affinities with the Dutch Masters of the 17th Century, intensively examining painters such as the Leiden Fijnschilder painters, Vermeer, ter Borch and Metsu in order to reflect on their methods of creating light through colour. How the manifold phenomena of the world might be represented remains an ongoing puzzle. Eoin Mc Hugh, (B. Dublin, 1977) is based in Berlin.
