Born in Birmingham in 1939, Patrick Hughes is one of the key figures in contemporary British painting and the pioneer of ‘reverspective’ art. Famous for his three-dimensional pieces and their unique use of optical illusion, Patrick’s art challenges the viewer to question our own understanding of perspective and vision. Patrick’s geometric abstract works often have a strong sense of narrative through their depth, and even when working on a flat surface, he still manages to create depth with his… intricate skill and refined mark making.
Patrick Hughes and Reverspective Art
Patrick broke onto the art scene in 1961 with his solo show at the Portal Gallery. His exhibition marked a pivotal moment in contemporary art as it was the first solo Pop Art show. Just three years later, Patrick created Sticking-out Room, a piece that would epitomise his signature style. This was Patrick’s first reverspective work and has shaped the course of his career and his enduring interest in the paradox and perception of space.
Success and Collections
Patrick’s ‘relief’ reverspective paintings, together with his rainbow works, have become hugely popular due their playful and intriguing nature, and Surrealist edge. Today, Patrick’s art is shown in the collections of London’s most prominent institutions, from The British Library to Tate Modern, and continues to show in exhibitions throughout the world. The artist-come-author has also produced a number of books, including Vicious Circles and Infinity, Upon the Pun, Dual Meaning in Words and Pictures and Paradoxymoron and Foolish Wisdom in Words and Pictures.
