Patrick Hughes ‘reverspective’ at BAFA UK

November 2019, London, United Kingdom – Another walk around Mayfair neighbourhood in London, another art stop we must share with FM24 readers.This time, a stop at Belair Fine Art Gallery which has opened its doors to the public in January 2018 on New Bond Street.

Stepping inside, the art lovers are nicely welcomed by the art representatives ready to share information and insights for the exhibited artists. As probably known, BAFA Gallery as its acronim calls it, is a gallery showcasing contemporary artworks in all big cities of the world like Miami, Paris, London, Geneva, Venice, Cannes, Beirut and many others.

This time, FM24’s attention goes to London and to the exhibition dedicated to British artist, Patrick Hughes. In the 60 years dedicated to art, Patrick Hughes became a Master of Art and Illusion.

Patrick was born in Birmingham, England in October 1939.His first exhibition was in 1961 and his first reverspective, “Sticking-out Room”, was made in 1964.Hughes’ original painted reliefs are concerned with optical and visual illusions, the science of perception and the nature of artistic representation. He is also the author of three books on the visual and verbal rethoric of the paradox and oxymoron.

But what is ‘reverspective’? It is an optical illusion on a three-dimensional surface where the parts of the picture which seem farthest away are actually physically the nearest. On top of the beautiful art technique tricking the eye, Patrick’s reverspective has become also a scientific subject in the psychology of perception.

Just let yourself immersed in the wonderful art illusions exposed in London which twist anyone’s idea of reality…magical indeed.
