Dear Diary: Tom Hughes

thughesday0

Tom Hughes!

Our friend Tom Hughes graciously accepted to kick-off our inaugural Dear Diary Seattle edition. Tom documented his whole day. 106 photographs of every aspect of his life from home to studio to family time to work! For our purposes we selected less than 106 photos so you could get an inside glimpse into his current art practice and work-life balance. The images are an honest+interesting portrait of a ‘day in the life of’ Mr. Hughes. Tom has a great show coming at the 4Culture Gallery this July and another show in Amsterdam later this year. The 4Culture exhibit: I Need Nothing: Tom Hughes builds forts! will allow “visitors to go inside and read things and everything!” Be sure to check out his opening on Thursday, July 11th from 6-8pm!!

Cardboard "lumber" I'm making for my Seattle show:  I'll be building a walk in structure with about 1200 feet of this stuff.  I cut down found cardboard and hand-build these hollow tubes to screw together into architectural spaces (or something).

Progress. I've been working on these for weeks, and finally got it figured out and done.
