Patrick Hughes (b.1939) is a London-based surrealist artist who taught at Leeds College of Art in the 1960s. He is the initiator of ‘reverspective’ – a mode of relief painting which plays with the logic of perspective. Forwards to Backwards will also feature Ouroboros, a sculptural snake made in the Leeds ceramic department in 1969.
A catalogue essay by Murray McDonald will accompany this exhibition. We are hugely grateful to Flowers Gallery for their support, and to Mr Hughes for recently donating a bursary fund to the College in honour of his friend and artist Anthony Earnshaw (1924-2001).
This exhibition is on at our Vernon Street Gallery. The opening times are 10.00am - 4.00pm Monday to Friday.
