Philip Hughes: Coastlines at Jerwood Gallery
12 May 2014
Philip Hughes will be the first in a series of artists to exhibit as part of the Spotlight programme – a one-room series of exhibitions at Jerwood Gallery. Hughes’ exhibition Coastlines will showcase new work exploring the coastal landscape of East Sussex and Kent from 3rd May to 8th June.
For Coastlines, Hughes focused on mapping aerial views of the remote eastern edge of Britain and his interest in the relationship between human history and the topography of the land are key inspiration for this new body of etchings, lithographs and paintings. These idyllic landscapes have inspired many artists including John Banting, Edward Burra and Royal Academician Jeffery Camp whose works are also on display at the gallery as part of the Jerwood Collection.
In 1995, we showcased Philip Hughes’ work in the John Jones Project Space and since then he has widely exhibited in Australia, Mexico, France, Italy and Britain for galleries such as the well-known Francis Kyle Gallery.
Philip Hughes has been a loyal John Jones client for over thirty years and utilises our skilled technicians and photographic studio to document high resolution images of his work. We produce a variety of artist surfaces for Hughes including honeycomb paper panels which provide an excellent sturdy ground to work on. We also ensure the longevity of Hughes works by framing to museum standards using high quality, acid free, paper fixing tabs and Perspex.
