Paul Hughes (b. 1966) was born and raised in Dublin. In 2009 his first exhibition of abstract landscapes focusing on depicting light above and below horizons was held in Dublin to great acclaim, leading to his first solo show in London at the King’s Road Gallery. Since then, he has had further successful exhibitions in London and his work has been launched by Tanya Baxter Contemporary in Asia.
Hughes has always had an obsession with light, particularly the beautiful chiaroscuro around Dublin Bay. His work is constantly evolving: in his latest project, The InfinitePossibilities of The Space Between, he has endeavoured to break out of the restraints of seascapes and to deconstruct everything to pure colour expression, in which the darker spaces give the light its intensity.
The works invite viewers to dive headlong into the infinite spaces, or wherever the mind and imagination may take them.
