Hughes' practice involves the arrangement of objects. Treating the installation environment as an abstract plane Hughes composes her installations in response to the circumstances and situation of the exhibition. The work is a result of Hughes' understanding of the gallery space not simply as a neutral container for art but as a tool in itself. Hughes' installations are characterized by a sculptural economy and a highly refined sensitivity to materials. They are environments that proffer potential and ambiguity, rich with associative possibility they are spaces with which the viewer is free to construct their own narratives.

In the exhibition objects are placed in a dialogic relationship with each other and with the exhibition space. Individual objects remain fundamentally individual yet, as an installation, have a cumulative identity. These relationships of scale and the varied positions from which a work can be interpreted are ideas that the installation explores. Hughes' work posits itself as an incitement, a discreet provocation to address our tacit understanding of the material and formal relationships that make up experience of the world.
