At once visually engaging and surprisingly familiar, playful ruminations on the history of art, perspective and surrealism

 

 

 

Hughes is best known as the pioneer of 'reverspective', or 'reverse perspective' - a practice which sees him investigating perception and illusion, often using his iconic rainbow motif to do so. Most of the paintings feature key elements in Hughes' craft such as rectilinear forms including buildings, books, and works of art that serve as anchors to the reverse perspective effect.

Hughes lives and works in London. Widely recognised 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.

Hughes has written a number of books, his writing is the research behind the paintings. Book works including Vicious Circles and Infinity, and more recently Foolish Wisdom in Words and Pictures.
