Patrick Hughes

Patrick Hughes is a British artist working in London. He is the creator of "reverspective", an optical illusion on a three-dimensional surface where the parts of the picture which seem farthest away are actually physically the nearest.

His fascination with the illusion of perspective began in the 1960s with works like Infinity (1963), Three Doors (1964) and The Space Ruler (1965). Since then, his reverspectives have been shown in London, New York, Santa Monica, Seoul, Chicago, Munich and Toronto.

Many of Hughes’ works are held at the Tate Modern where they can be viewed by appointment.
