Their Egos Will Lead Them To This Future presents a body of painting centering around Greek Mythology, the central figures, their attempts to take fate into their own hands, and the punishments aligning their arrogance. Using bold colours, prominent underpainting and gestural brush marks, Hughes interprets these myths as vivid, dreamy paintings, alongside fabled monsters and the timeless landscapes of the Aegean Coast. Subtly showcasing the temporality of the mortal ego through storytelling, contrasted by the stoic beauty of landscapes; telling tales far beyond the scope of any hero, story or memory.
