We used to make these in our school art classes but I've never seen one as good as this. There was a good seven or eight people standing in the room walking around them back and forth over and over again, just disbelieving.
"Reverspective is forced perspective but backwards," the artist Patrick Hughes says.
These Reverspectives are painted by London based artist Patrick Hughes who's been exhibiting with Flowers Galleries since the seventies, so he's obviously the source of my teacher's idea for our art projects.
Photographs just don't convey what these paintings look like so I took the video above when I popped into Flowers Gallery on Kingsland Road yesterday. To see Patrick Hughes at his London Studio watch a film made by Jacob Harbord.
