Patrick Hughes’ enthusiasms are for paradoxes, oxymorons, puns: the off-beat, thought-provoking and out-of-the-way. Among the many oddballs he has written about are MC Escher, Arcimboldo, Magritte, Ivor Cutler, Slim Gaillard, NF Simpson and George Brecht. This is the first anthology of Hughes’ writings published in newspapers, journals and catalogues from the 1960s to 2008, and features revealing remarks on Hughes’ own and his friends’ work – Les Coleman, Anthony Earnshaw, Peter Daglish, Jeff Edwards, Maggi Hambling, Boyd and Evans and Jane O’Malley. Murray McDonald, ‘the critic and friend of the artist’, writes on Hughes’ own work. Interviews, obituaries, book reviews, perceptual theorizing, creative writing, artists, exhibitions, even cartoons complete this comprehensive anthology with over one-hundred-and-thirty images. With the ownership signature of textile artist Ann Sutton to front endpaper. Condition: very good
