Set of 2 bookends handmade by Picture Room artist Skylar Hughes for Salter House. These unique, hand-painted bookends speak to the structure and cycles of the seasons. With a muted, hazy palette, the artist paints to embody environmental processes. His shard-like brushwork syphons nature’s colours and textures, offering a somatic impression of how it feels to be in the field, observing tensions between stasis and motion, fullness and emptiness, the singular and the plural. Skylar Hughes, b. 1986, is an artist living in Los Angeles, CA who makes paintings, objects, and collage that focus on chance, change, and nature. Hughes earned a BFA from The Hartford Art School, CT in 2009, and has held solo exhibitions at The Lodge, CA (2016, 2019), Day Space Night (2018), and the New Britain Museum of American Art, CT (2013).
