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.
