Reverspective

TOTD was at the British Library last month and particularly enjoyed seeing a work by the artist Patrick Hughes, who specialises in what he calls “reverspectives”. These are three-dimensional paintings that appear flat when viewed from the front, but as you move from side to side the painting exhibits a staggering illusion of depth and shifting perspective.

There’s a very good video clip that shows the effect well on Patrick Hughes’ web site.

A more amateur video of the work on display at the BL, which aptly shows shelves of books, can be seen here.
