Patrick Hughes creates small scale watercolor paintings that are both subtle and complex. Though abstract, Hughes’ work invokes narrative, revealing the familiar in his meticulous abstract compositions. Hughes’ control and mastery of his medium is clearly visible in the impeccable gradation of color, creating refined forms and sharp edges with a bold palette that is rarely seen in the tradition of watercolor painting. Patrick Hughes is from Boise, Idaho. Stewart Gallery is privileged to be his sole representation.
