Patrick Hughes - 50 Years - FC
Fifty Years in Show Business

14 July - 3 September 2011


Flowers Galleries are proud to announce FiftyYears in Show Business, a major retrospective exhibition celebrating Patrick Hughes' life as an artist.

Included in the retrospective are works on loan from major private and public collections, i.e., Tate, Arts Council England; Patrick Hughes' famous rainbow series, perhaps best known as postcards, of which millions of copies have sold. Also presented are early works especially re-made for the exhibition, including gloss paintings from the 1960's. Flowers on Cork Street will feature Hughes' ubiquitous three dimensional Reverspective images, which confound viewers by presenting those parts of the picture that seem farthest away at the nearest point. The visual effect is one of constant movement, as images, i.e., of Venetian waterscapes, seem to spring to life moving to and fro, inwards and outwards, cleverly animated by the motion of the viewer.
