The Paintings

The recent paintings of Gordon Hughes are a kind of science fiction. Contemporary notions of unavoidable randomness interfered with by consciousness present for him a spiritual and expressive potential that is the metaphysical space he explores in his work. Using a range of painterly and graphic interventions he evokes multiple spacial relations, abstractions, images and meanings that flow in and out of contradiction with themselves. The work created is an attempt at recognition and reconciliation of these contradictions.
