Patrick Hughes

Born: 1939, UK, England, Birmingham

Painter, printmaker and writer. A self-taught artist, he produces paintings and relief constructions, known as 'reverspectives', which create optical illusions usually within a panoramic format. These surreal compositions feature bookshelves, gallery interiors, architecture and landscapes, the latter often viewed through a series of doors. He is the author of four books including 'Upon the Pun: Dual Meaning in Words and Pictures', Hammond, 1978, and 'More on Oxymoron' Jonathan Cape, 1984. He has exhibited at the Angela Flowers Gallery since 1970
