Patrick Hughes was born in Birmingham in 1939. His first exhibition was in 1961 and his first reverspective, Sticking-out Room, was made in 1964. He has been exhibiting with Angela Flower Gallery (now Flower Gallery) since 1970. in the 1970's Hughes' name became synonymous with rainbow paintings, which also became very popular as prints and as postcards; people enjoyed them as decoration, but for Hughes the rainbow represented a solid experience. in the late 1980s Hughes revisited exploiting the difference between perspective and reverspective and solidifying space.
Hughes' work is concerned with optical and visual illusions, the science of perception and the nature of artistic representation. He has written and collated three books on the visual and verbal rhetoric of the paradox and oxymoron.
