John Hughes

Artist and University of Wisconsin–Madison alumnus John Hughes creates sculptures that reference the history of American craft. In the case of Untitled from 1991, the rockers on which the work is mounted are reminiscent of historic American furniture, such as cradles and rocking chairs, while the use of steel bands suggest coopered barrels. Many of Hughes’s sculptures incorporate an element of movement, as with this work, which can rock back and forth.
