The work of renowned painter and sculptor Gary Hume is characterised by his invigorating combinations of coloured gloss. In his first major monograph the artist’s rich, affecting work is granted new life in over 200 full-colour illustrations. Using imagery as diverse as polar bears, snowmen and supermodels, Hume turns ephemera into  portraits and abstract landscapes – the paintings are simplistic yet engaging and blend a charming naivety with a highly sophisticated grasp of the colour wheel, all of which cements Hume’s position as one of Britain’s most celebrated contemporary artists.

Gary Hume

English artist Gary Hume (b.1962) graduated from Goldsmith’s College, London, in 1988. He was part of Damien Hirst’s 1988 Freeze exhibition now considered to be the launch of the Young British Artists. He currently lives and works in London and upstate New York.

Departing from his ‘door paintings’ Hume started making small-scale gloss paintings on aluminium, using images from the media, celebrities and animals. His bright palette and 2-D surfaces describe simplified forms often describing pop culture and child hood idioms.

Solo exhibitions include Cave Paintings, White Cube, London, 2006; baby Birds and Things That Are Left Behind, Galleries Lorcan O’ Neill, Rome, 2008 and Door Paintings, Modern Art, Oxford, 2008, while recent group exhibitions include Aftershock: Contemporary British Art 1990-2006, Guangdong Museum of Art, Guangzhou, China, 2006; Demons, Yarns and Tales: Tapestries by Contemporary Artists, The Dairy, London, UK, 2008 and Art Is For The Spirit: From the UBS Art Collection, Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, Japan, 2008.
