He works from what are often unusual perspectives – for instance, several of the paintings originate from time spent exploring the city from the upper levels of multi-story car parks. The works possess an intrigue through this vulnerable and idiosyncratic response, where creativity and character can flourish from this emotive exploration of responding to his surroundings.
"Hugh Frazer has a feeling for abstract patterns in his crisply organised, carefully lit urban landscapes."
Aidan Dunne, Irish Times 18th May 2009d
