The renowned artist Philip Hughes returns, for a second time, to Galerie Pascal Lainé to exhibit ‘Les Valleés de Ménerbes de 1974 à 2014’ from 5th – 27th July.

‘Les Valleés de Ménerbes de 1974 à 2014’ is a selection of works coming from Hughes’s continuing study of the two valleys below Ménerbes in Vaucluse, France. For 40 years he has been fascinated by the changing patterns of agriculture and the subtle complexities of the two valleys autumn through to summer. Hughes captures spectacular views of the landscape using a mixture of mediums, ranging from acrylic to gouache and pastel. With some of the works going back to over two decades, histories are submerged and complicit in the landscape.  The works invokes the presence of land and reflect the colour, tone and form of the mutable landscape.

Born in London, Hughes’ awards include a CBE, and honorary Doctorates/Fellowships at the Universities of Stirling, Kent, Queen Mary’s College and Royal Holloway. An on-going fascination with landscapes spanning from Antarctica to South America helps to inform Hughes artistic practice.
