    Malcolm Hughes was one of a small group of British artists who in the 1960s abandoned figurative painting to explore a form of abstraction rooted firmly in the tradition of the European constructivism. His own style, as an artist and group organiser, came clearly into view when he co-founded the Systems Group in 1969 with Jeffrey Steele.
