Patrick Hughes – Peggy - Pre-release
I made the original of this work in 1963 using gloss paint on hardboard when I was a young pop artist of twenty-three or twenty-four. This work comes from my childlike sentiment to make some element of poetry out of the everyday. I noticed the way people hung their washing out on clotheslines with pegs and I thought I’ll jump my peg up onto the line and make him or her into a tightrope walker.
I think in the back of my mind were the little peg dolls poorer people used to make for their children. The legs of the peg were the legs of the doll, and the top of the peg was the head. Sometimes they even had a little frock. You can see them at the Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green.
