Hugh Mendes: Rest in Paint
May 5, 2024
ACS member Hugh Mendes' solo show 'Rest in Paint' is currently on display at the Century Club in Soho.

Showcasing a selection of Mendes’ recent paintings, Rest in Paint provides a fascinating glimpse into the artist’s prolific career and renowned obituary paintings of prominent cultural figures such as fellow ACS member Paula Rego. Rendered in the format of newspaper obituary pages, Mendes juxtaposes the ephemeral nature of the newsprint with the tradition of oil painting, provoking poignant contemplation on the themes of life, death and artistic expression.
