Philip Hughes


Galerie Pascal Lainé, 3, rue Sainte Barbe, 84560 Ménerbes France

15 August - 22 September 2010

The exhibition in the main derives from the landscape between the Luberon and Mont Ventoux in Vaucluse, France. Whilst two or three works go back to the 1990s, the majority have been undertaken in the years 2007-2010. The exhibition also includes a group of abstracts, all painted in his studio in France, reflecting in some way the colours and forms of that landscape. A final group of works is far removed: the man-made hill of Silbury in Wiltshire, England. This mysterious hill dates from around 2750BC. Philip has long been fascinated by its haunting presence in the land, and has returned there over and over again.
