The paintings of Gordon Hughes are a kind of science fiction. CThe 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.
Besides his fine art painting practice Gordon has worked nationally and internationally on painting commissions as well as working as a scenic artist, illustrator and storyboard artist on over 80 film and television productions.
