Patrick Caulfield is an undisputed master of visual illusion. His prints stand as an astonishing repertoire of cunning artifice. The objects and spaces so magically summoned into visibility are imbued with reference and implication of that not visible. Often black and white, they are evocations of a world in which quiet dramas of happiness and sadness are played out, dates are kept or unkept, conviviality enjoyed or solitude endured.
