Patrick Hughes’ pictures are hard to describe, but easy to enjoy: Hughes makes moving pictures. His libraries, skyscrapers and mazes seem to turn around and follow you like the eyes in portraits. Flat on the page they don’t ‘work’, but when animated by the motion and mind of the viewer his pictures spring to life. For over fifty years, Hughes has captured the hearts and perceptual thoughts of an ever-expanding public with his art.
The first book to handle the entirety of Hughes’ production from the early 1960s to 2011: Writer and critic John Slyce gives an exhaustive and intelligent account of the artist’s formation and the implications of his paradoxical art.
