About This Work

Patrick Hughes was born in Birmingham in 1939. He studied at Leeds Day Training College between 1959-61 and had his fuirst solo show at the Portal Gallery in 1961.
Patrick Hughes’s paintings and wall reliefs wittily address art history and the nature of perception and
perspective. He invented an optical illusion called “reverspective,” a neologism for reverse perspective.
The protruding parts of his works appear to recede, and the receding parts appear to protrude. As viewers walk by the pieces, the compositions seem to move.

This print comes from a series of 16 created by artist members of the Chelsea Arts Club for the club’s centenary in 1991..It is from an edition of 100.
