Alon Zakaim Fine Art presents Patrick Hughes: A New Look at Perspective, a showcase of ‘reverse perspective’ paintings by renowned British Pop Artist and Surrealist Patrick Hughes and his inaugural exhibition with the gallery.

About

Set across two floors, the exhibition traces 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.

The ground floor gallery with feature a selection of iconic original paintings from Hughes’ oeuvre, including Appropriately, 2018 (fig. 1) and Poppyish, 2018 (fig. 2). The upstairs space will showcase a selection of smaller multiples and mixed media artworks, such as Banksy, 2018 (fig. 3) and Piccolo, 2018 (fig. 4)

Patrick Hughes lives and works in London. One of the major painters of contemporary British art, his works are in many public collections including the British Library, the Tate Gallery and The British Academy, London; the Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow; The Deutsche Bibliothek, Frankfurt and the Denver Art Museum. Hughes has exhibited in London and throughout Europe, South East Asia, America and Canada.
