Y'No (detail), by Lisa Hughes, 2018

Artist's Statement from the Onion Reality Exhibition

Based in Sydney, Lisa Hughes sees her practice as a form of escapism. Her work provides insight into her own processes of recovery, revealing her inner-subconscious, personal conflicts and intuitions.

Lisa predominantly paints and draws, creating surrealist landscapes often featuring oceans, forests and waterfalls where mountains, boats, birds and trees morph into human hands, faces and features. 

Lisa has utilised acrylic paint on old bedding, a hospital gown and other recycled elements to illustrate how as a society we unsuccessfully beautify our dirty laundry.


Y'No, by Lisa Hughes, 2018, was exhibited at the Onion Reality exhibition at Front Up, 9  11 Rowley Street, Seven Hills, NSW, from 27 February to 3 March, 2018. Lisa was a participant in the Emerge 2017 program supported by Ability Options, the Art Gallery of New South Wales and Accessible Arts. It is funded by Ability Options, the Packer Family Foundation and Crown Resorts Foundation. The program is focused on supporting practicing artists with disability.
