About the Artist

Ariane Heloise Hughes (b.1997, British-Austalian) navigates the tenuous threshold of the subject/object dichotomy through her practice. By blending contemporary and traditional imagery with the amalgamation of figuration and setting, she challenges this rigid paradigm. Throughout Ariane’s practice, the female nude is a recurring subject, personifying the subject/object dualism within the Western Canon of Art. Through investigating this traditional trope and by playing on both sides of the threshold between the mundane and the surreal, Ariane hopes to conceive of a new visual vernacular for desire. One that operates outside the norms of conventional beauty and ‘the gaze’.
