Patrick Hughes is another master of perspective who adds the idea of three-dimensionality to his work. He was born in 1939 in Birmingham, England. Hughes has written three books on visual and verbal rhetoric.
In 1964 he did his first piece on reverspective. These are paintings that when viewed from the correct spot look like flat paintings that focus on perspective and depth. However, when the viewer moves they see that the painting is actually 3-D and is on panels that come towards the viewer. The part of the painting that is closest to the viewer is the vanishing point (furthest point away) in the image that the artist is creating. This doubles the use of illusion and depth and can temporarily disorient the viewer.
His work intrigues me because he took visual perspective to a new level to really play with the viewers eye and has mastered the idea of illusion in 3-D painting. I really want to push my boundaries and create something that toys with the eye; mixing reality and visual perspective cues. "I believe they have an experience, unlike any other, in which they see the impossible happen. And I hope that they then think a bit about why that is. If lookers and seers experience the paradoxical and reciprocal relation between parts of the world and themselves, they get a sense of the flow of life." -Pactick Hughes This is similar to the experience that I want to create with my project. Patrick Hughes reminds me a little of Sara's pick David Hilliard in that he pieces together different images and different perspectives to create one cohesive image.
