A Bit of Artobiography
“…When I was a boy I painted a skeleton in luminous paint on the side of the Baptist Chapel in Warmingham Road, Crewe – the Chapel folk were angry, thinking it irreligious, but I was just looking for a large canvas…” recalls Hughes on his early leanings towards art. Just a few years later his official art career was to begin out of an act of rejection by the English Literature Department at college and at the suggestion of the Art Department; nothing at all to do with an act of will on Hughes’ part. A humourous and candid account of half-a-century of Hughes’ studio experiences, written by the artist and published to coincide with his retrospective at Flowers Gallery in 2011.
