Kate Hughes

Kate Hughes is a Sydney based artist interested in the landscape, feminism, colonialism and archival history. She works in gray-scale and occasionally colour, across media including drawing, etching, photography, sewing and needlepoint. After a few years hiatus from art making she's developing a new body of work about these things.
