Gráinne McHugh is a Cape Town based artist who mainly works with clay. “She creates ambiguous figures: beautiful, cute, fun, but also discomposed, ironic and muted. A range of every-woman doll heads has been her chief preoccupation.
Nomadic and self-taught she works like a magpie – finding the textures of an odd button, a soiled doily and throwaway scrap inspirational.”
“My work is really a series of mistakes, riffs and quirks.”
