Sara Hughes is an Auckland artist with a Master of Fine Arts from Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland. Hughes' "paintings" can be found on all sorts of surfaces, from walls and floors, to plastic containers and paper cut-outs. Her tools range from paint brushes to computer programs, juxtaposing the subjective hand of the artist with the objective mark of the machine. She often uses the same material as sign writers - machine-cut vinyl - but adds layers of painting and printing over the top, covering walls with a dazzling array of colourful patterns. Hughes has exhibited in major public galleries in New Zealand and her paintings and installations are held in many important Australasian public and private collections including the Chartwell Collection; Auckland City Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki; Te Papa Tongarewa; Wellington and the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.
