Acknowledged internationally for his large-scale bold and dynamic paintings, Huxley’s abstract work explores implied perspectives, combining stretched and distorted ellipses and shapes with flat blocks of colour and linear patterns to create dynamic illusions. Recently the artist has also been exploring the three-dimensional space by producing sculptures that investigate the relationship between geometry, perspective and balance, seen also as the subject matter in his painting practice.
