Artworks by highly-respected painter Philip Hughes CBE have gone on display in the Peter Hall Performing Arts Centre’s Pelican Gallery.
The Perse School is delighted to be hosting an exhibition of Philip’s pieces, entitled Alquimia de los Planetas, Alchemy of the Planets, which he has created in collaboration with Mexican writer Carmen Boullosa.
Philip places the relationship between landscape and human history at the heart of his work. Over the last 40 years, he has travelled across five continents to map out a distinctive, distilled vision of landscape in which topography plays a central role.
Work for the current exhibition derives from the wealth of images from recent missions to planets and moons within our solar system. These include the New Horizons mission, which provided the first close-ups of Pluto in 2015, as well as the 2016 Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, the Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn and the probe Dawn to the dwarf planet of Ceres between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.
The exhibition runs until 27 November and is open to the public at the following times:
• Tuesday 6 November, 5.45pm-8.30pm
• Wednesday 7 November, 5.45pm-8.30pm
• Monday 12 November, 5.45pm-9pm
• Tuesday 13 November, 5.45pm-8.30pm
• Tuesday 20 November, 5.45pm-8.30pm
