Honey Jones-Hughes is a Welsh artist based in Rotterdam, NL. She graduated from BA(Hons) Sculpture and Environmental Art at the Glasgow School of Art in 2016, and is currently studying her MFA at The Piet Zwart Institute.

My work is grounded in the performative, I am interested in the roles women perform both paid and unpaid, and in highlighting and emphasising the ordinary through subversion, and subtle warping of the everyday.  I explore themes of daily life through memory and dialogues, often thinking on the impact of stereotypes on family and working lives, reframing and analysing from a feminist perspective.

Iā€™m interested in the role of emotional labour in the global economy and in the characters we each play, often unknowingly. The shop worker, the secretary, the waitress. I increasingly develop characters, taking lead from the people I meet and interact with, and allowing their approaches and words to become my own as I explore my possible alternative lives.

I often work site-specifically, and allow historical, social and political contexts to bleed into my work in this sense through presentation. Works may manifest themselves into live works, publications, video, text, objects or a combination of all these things.
