Hugh Frazer works mainly in oils. His main subject matter is the urban environment, particularly Dublin, Belfast and Brussels. He is particularly interested in the contrast between the old and new and the drama of light and shadow and the abstract shapes they create. In his paintings he also explores the isolation and loneliness of the city. There is often a sense of stillness, suspense and foreboding in his work. Particular views are selected because they provoke a personal response and emotional reaction. This is explored in the painting. He has exhibited frequently in major exhibitions in Ireland (RHA, RUA, Iontas) and has held two solo exhibitions in Brussels in 2007 and 2009.
"Hugh Frazer has a feeling for abstract patterns in his crisply organised, carefully lit urban landscapes." Aidan Dunne Irish Times
