Alon Zakaim Fine Art gallery are presenting their first solo exhibition with Patrick Hughes.“Set across two floors, the exhibition will trace Hughes’ lifelong exploration of perspective and visual paradox. Confounding viewers for more than fifty years, his three-dimensional paintings appear to move with the viewer, creating a false perspective by cleverly presenting those parts of the picture that seem farthest away at the nearest point. At first glance the paintings appear two-dimensional, but in Hughes’ own words, ‘They come to life when we bring them to life.’ This truly unique surrealist art-form takes the viewer on a colourful journey down gallery corridors, around graffitied street corners and along dazzling Venetian canals.”
Set across two floors, the exhibition will trace Hughes' lifelong exploration of perspective and visual paradox. The ground floor gallery will feature a selection of iconic original paintings from Hughes' oeuvre, including Appropriately, 2018 and Poppyish, 2018 (above). The upstairs space will showcase a selection of smaller multiples and mixed media artworks, such as Banksy, 2018 and Piccolo, 2018.
