Louisiana poster with the work, Pop (2021), by the American artist, Shara Hughes (b. 1981). Shara Hughes uses a multitude of techniques and equivocally references art history in her brightly colored paintings, and is particularly recognized for her invented landscapes.

The work Pop was created as a series of large-format paintings. Hughes has allowed various flowers to play a leading role, and here i.e. poppies, which fill the foreground of the canvas and make it difficult to look at the landscape element which seems to lie behind.

The title of the work elegantly plays with the English word for poppy, poppy—and then 'pop', which is both popular culture and an art movement that cultivated this very culture. But pop is also the sound of something popping out. And then we are back at the bud shoots, the poppies that spring up here and there and have finally covered the canvas. Pop, pop.

In 2019, Shara Hughes was interviewed by the Louisiana Channel in her studio in Brooklyn, New York. In the interview, they talked about getting inspiration from other painters and why she feels that a good painting is about "going to the edge and not giving all the answers".
