Hugo's practice operates across painting and installation. He is interested in disagreeing with a problem and constructs idiosyncratic systems that play with the abstraction of historical pile-ups. In turn, the work limns relationships of dependency and ordered hierarchies, attempting to illustrate some sort of chaos.
Hugo also has a collaborative practice with Clara Joyce; together they run NWEB, a curatorial project with an adaptive methodology interested in the potential of collaboration and organisation.
We acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Owners of the lands upon which our campus is situated, the people of the Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung, who have created art, made music and told their stories here for thousands of generations. We also acknowledge and extend our respect to the Traditional Owners of all lands on which our work is viewed, shared and enjoyed, and to all Elders, past, present and emerging.
