Overview

An important British Pop Artist and Surrealist from the 1960s and 1970s, Hughes is familiar to many for his evocative series of works incorporating a 'rainbow' as an artistic motif. More recently, he has been concentrating on false-perspective and the art of illusion to create  images that appear to recess into the picture plane, but on closer inspection actually project into the viewer's space. Paintings that at first glance appear to be two-dimensional depictions, seem to move with you as you walk past, making corridors and arches come in and out of view, doors and shutters open and close, and give the illusion that one can see round corners. Adapting this extraordinary technique with reverence to Paul Klee, and particularly the Surrealist Ren̩ Magritte, Patrick Hughes has developed a truly unique surrealist art-form.
