Eoin McHugh, pp. 13-18, 2016, pigment ink on paper, Framed: 54.7 x 49.7 x 2.5 cm, Collection Irish Museum of Modern Art, Purchase, 2021, 2021
Eoin Mc Hugh (b. 1977, Dublin, Ireland. Living and working in Berlin) 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.
