About Terms and Conditions

Jason Hughes is an interdisciplinary artist with an emphasis on sculpture, drawing, and print media. For the last several years his research has focused on the history of American economic power and its influence over cultural representation in the United States. His creative practice is quite diverse including textiles, collages, and cast sculptures from shredded currency; a series of large scale prints that are ornate abstract composites of money; and sculptural objects from appropriated street barricades used for crowd control. His work addresses issues of high and low craft, production and trade, as well as shifts in representation and the perception of value.
