In the 1970s and 80s Patrick Hughes was inspired by rainbows, 'A rainbow is a transitory event composed of water, air and light. I tried to give it a mass, permanence and personality.' Hughes rainbows are the reverse of the romantic: hard-edged, leaning against walls, emerging from dustbins, posted through letter-boxes. They exemplify those qualities in art which he cherishes above all: the paradoxical, the absurd,the magical and the poetic. Hughes' surrealistic leanings have been influenced by artists such as Paul Klee, Marcel Duchamp and Rene Magritte.
