Patrick held his first solo show in 1961 at the Portal Gallery, London. A few years later, Hughes made two seminal reverse perspective works, Infinity and Sticking-out Room. In the 1970s 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. For the last 25 years his 3-D reverspective paintings have been hughesually in demand, exhibited around the world and featured in many public collections. The experience of seeing a Patrick Hughes sculptured painting in reality is really to experience unreality and the paradox of illusory space and movement.
The VeVe Artist Program has been a pillar of the VeVe digital collectibles experience, and now with the rollout of the VeVe web app, we are launching an entirely new vertical on the platform — Artworks! This new program is bringing both established and up-and-coming artists and licensed collectible Artworks to the VeVe Collector community as extremely limited edition NFTs. More here.
Silent auctions let you collect in an entirely new and private way! In a silent auction, you will place a bid on your favorite digital collectible Artwork (in Gems) for whatever you are personally willing to spend on the piece. The value of your bid is hidden from other auction participants, just as you will not be able to see what they have bid, and when the auction timer expires — the highest bidder wins! More Details here.
Note: Participating in VeVe collectible drops — including Artworks — requires mandatory KYC. If you haven’t completed your KYC, it only takes a few minutes to become verified. You can find the details here.
“If I fell face-down in some soft mud and someone pulled me out, and there was some low light falling on the impression I had made in the mud, it would look like me, with my nose sticking out even though it had plunged into the mud. (This is a natural phenomenon, unlike artificial perspective, and my own reverspective). In SpaceFace, this inside-out painted sculpture of my head, I have painted the hollow face as if it sticks out – and my face seems to follow you around the room.” - Patrick
