  • Biography
Patrick Hughes is a British artist known for inventing a unique optical illusion called "reverspective": a three-dimensional relief painting in which the objects that appear closest to the viewer are actually the furthest away in space. His work plays with perspective and distance, challenging and sometimes disorienting his audience. "When the principles of perspective are inverted and consolidated into sculptural paintings, something extraordinary happens," he says of his work. "The mind is fooled into believing in the impossible, that a static painting can move on its own." Born Peter David Hughes on October 20, 1939 in Birmingham, England, the painter created Sticking-out Room, his first "reverspective" in 1964, after studying at Leeds Day Training College. On the day of his graduation, his first exhibition took place at the Portal Gallery in London. Currently living and working in London, England, Hughes continues to follow the traditions of Pop Art, Optical Art and Surrealism.
