Visually Engaging: Patrick Hughes
BC- Vancouver | Sep 18 2012 | (23:05:34 - EDT)
Patrick Hughes' works are at once visually engaging and surprisingly familiar, playful ruminations on the history of art, perspective and surrealism. Most of the paintings feature key elements in Hughes’ craft such as rectilinear forms: gallery walls, buildings, books, doorways and works of art that serve as anchors to the reverse perspective effect.
Patrick Hughes lives and works in London. Widely recognized as one of the major painters of contemporary British art, he is also a designer, teacher, and writer. His works are part of many public collections including: the British Library and the Tate Gallery, London; the Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow; The Deutsche Bibliotheek, Frankfurt and the Denver Art Museum.
Hughes has exhibited in London and throughout Europe, South East Asia, America and Canada. Books by Patrick Hughes include “Vicious Circles and Infinity”, “Upon the Pun: Dual Meaning in Words and Pictures”, and “More on Oxymoron”. “Perverspective”, by John Slyce, is the most recent monograph published on his work.
His latest exhibition for viewing is “Perspectivariations”, paintings, multiples, and prints. The Winsor Gallery of Vancouver is pleased to present this exhibition from Oct. 3 until Nov. 10, 2012.
