Hughes’ work uses the history of colonialism as a basis to highlight parallels between that violent history and contemporary global conflicts. ln today’s informational age global occurrences of violence reach us through the media: transmitting fear that increasingly replaces sensations of calm. Hughes’ work interprets in visual form the spectacle of information, knowledge and subjectivity. Furthermore, he investigates postcolonial reconciliation through competitive sports imagery, popular culture and narratives of multicultural societies.
