About the Work

A relaxed moment is captured in this portrait of a female figure. Earthy dashes of paint illustrate a casual pose, almost as if the depicted woman might be about to take a step forward or tuck her hair behind her ear. (b.1968, Kingston, ON) Well known for his sensitive and thoughtful portraits, this is an excellent example of Daniel Hughes' work. Hughes expresses great emotion and contemplation in this portrait. Hughes graduated from the New York Academy of Art (MFA, 1995) and received the Elizabeth Greenshields Award for Figurative Art in 1991 and 1995. He has had solo shows throughout Canada, England and the US, and was part of a prestigious group show at The National Portrait Gallery in London (2005). He was shortlisted for the British Portrait Prize in 2012, and was shortlisted for the Canadian Portrait Prize in 2015.
