Patrick Hughes — master of puns, paradoxes, and perspective — brings to the metaverse for the second time, his unique technique of forced perspective using physical sculptural paintings. He calls this technique reverspective. In his reverspective paintings — a technique Hughes developed himself — Hughes builds painting surfaces that protrude from the wall, typically in a series of pyramid shapes set side by side. His unique effect is achieved by a forced perspective scene in which the point that’s farthest in the picture is actually the point that is physically nearest the viewer: the top of the pyramid. When viewed straight-on, a reverspective painting will appear to be a flat surface, but as the viewer moves about the painting — even just a tilt of the head or a subtle shift to one side — its tricky perspective becomes a confounding three-dimensional scene, quite unexpected and disorienting for our pattern-seeking minds. "What seems to be near is the farthest point and what seems to be far is actually the nearest point, which causes it all to move. By making things in perspective, you can get them to come alive. - Patrick Hughes Collector Bonus Collectors of either Limited Edition of Empty City or Sea City will receive a downloadable package that has been reformatted to include: MP4, GIF & JPG of the Limited Edition. *Editions 16 & 17 for both Empty City & Sea City are reserved by the artist*
