Brushes with Greatness present Jack Hughes - Their Egos Will Lead Them To This Future

Their Egos Will Lead Them To This Future presents a body of painting by Jack Hughes, stemming from the central work entitled Rejection Of The Gods, depicting Bellerophon falling from Pegasus, as he attempted to fly to Mount Olympus to join the Gods; where he felt he belonged. The story of Bellerophon is one of many Greek legends centered around man's ego and sense of entitlement. Hughes’ painting is a showcase of these ancient Greek figures, their attempts to take fate into their own hands and the punishments aligning their arrogance.
