Hughen/Starkweather is the collaboration of San Francisco artists Jennifer Starkweather and Amanda Hughen. They create research-based, abstract artworks about specific places. They have been working together since 2006. In their multi-year project, Shifting Shorelines, Hughen/Starkweather investigate places where water meets land, and the complex human and environmental factors that shape these areas. By allowing the resulting abstract artworks to resonate with collected data without presenting it in a didactic way, the artists layer past and future narratives. Their work does not attempt to offer answers or solutions, but hopes to prompt new questions and perspectives.
