Eddie McHugh

Hermano | Chantecler | Meditation | Dreaming | In The Forest | Still Life





Eddie McHugh focuses on paintings that combine representational subjects with fantastical dream imagery and creative flair. Choosing to paint ordinary people and mundane objects, he constructs his visual language so as to portray them as part of a unique other universe. He then incorporates archetypes and religious iconography, as well as elements of abstraction, in an attempt to describe the connective tissue that binds us to each other and the planet, reinforcing the philosophy of interdependence among all things. In Hermano, he uses strong yet muted blues, oranges and turquoise to tell his story of a peasant man. In Still Life, brighter, intense blues and oranges play against pale yellows as dynamically shaped cutouts tease the eye and mind.

McHugh developed his drawing skills at an early age, receiving no formal art training until attending his high school art education program in the greater Boston area where he studied under recent graduates of some of the nation’s top art schools. He has participated in both solo and group shows for two decades, earning an honorable mention at the Whatcom Museum of History Art International Art Competition, and his works hang in various private collections.
