From the artist

Sara Hughes is an established New Zealand artist well known for her dynamic paintings and installations.

 

“This work responds to a basic human need to be creative, and invites participants of all ages to take part. My hope is that you will enjoy this mini set of All My Favourite Shapes, have fun making your own creations and compositions - the possibilities are endless”.

 

“I created the first Mini Set of All My Favourite Shapes for my sons sixth birthday using the offcuts left over from hand cutting the magnetic shapes for the initial iteration of the work at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery in 2019. During lockdown I thought a lot about the role of art and developed this set with the intention of bringing creativity for all ages into the home. It was important to me that this artist edition was made in New Zealand; the magnetic shapes are screen printed to match my specific colours, the wooden box, tube and printing has all be created in New Zealand and I am currently employing a group of young artists in the studio to help make All My Favourite Shapes - The Mini Set".
