Gráinne McHugh is an Irish artist currently living in Cape Town, South Africa. Mainly working with clay, she creates ambiguous figures ranging from cute, beautiful and fun to ironic and discomposed. Her main obsession is her ever-growing series of “every-woman doll heads.” She is a self-taught artist finding the textures of an odd button, a soiled doily and throwaway scrap inspirational. Gráinne describes her work as a series of mistakes, riffs and quirks. “They have become little friends who have a habit of leaving my Woodstock Exchange studio. Who knows where they all are now,” she says.
