About

Editioned and hand-painted multiple with archival inkjet. Signed edition bottom left: 15/75 Signed bottom right: Patrick Hughes The constituent parts of the print - main theme, bottom plane and sky or ceiling - are painted in oil separately on flat paper. The finished painting is duplicated digitally, hand-assembled on board constructions and hand-finished. Please note: All dimensions are framed sizes. ... Patrick Hughes had an impressive first solo show in 1961 at the Portal Gallery, London, on the day of his graduation from the Leeds Day Training College. A few years after this major exhibition, Hughes showcased his first signature reverse perspective or reverspective pieces that would later represent the majority of his works. In these pieces, Hughes explores the science of perception and the illusory sense of a painting coming to life. These reverspective optical reliefs are created with pyramid or wedge-shaped blocks of wood. Sculpting these three-dimensional blocks into panoramic proportions, Hughes then paints cityscapes, interior spaces and city views where the protruding blocks appear to recede and the gaps in between them appear to come forward. This creates an optical illusion where the painting moves with the viewer. The mind-bending experience of viewing these sculpted paintings has caught the attention of private and public collectors around the world. His paintings have been featured in many institutions such as the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Tate gallery to name a few.
