The first comprehensive monograph on this British artist, presenting over a decade of work.

A witty, dark and sensitive humour runs through Des Hughes’s work, delivered in a seemingly deadpan tone. His practice is an obsessive, physical enquiry into the traditions of sculpture, rethinking conventional sculptural methods and materials. Nothing is as it first appears; crudely modelled clay is meticulously cast in resin but, with the inclusion of marble dust, it could have been either carved and polished from a block of stone or fashioned from a piece of chewing gum.
