Gary Hume - The Indifferent Owl

January 25, 2012 by Kay

18 January – 25 February 2012

White Cube, Hoxton Square | Mason's Yard

Gary Hume - Migration 2011 À˜ 46 7/8 in. (À˜ 119 cm) Gloss paint on aluminium

White Cube is pleased to announce 'The Indifferent Owl', an exhibition of new paintings and sculptures by Gary Hume. Over the past twenty years, Hume has developed a distinctive visual language of bold, simplified forms to create paintings that engage the viewer with their pleasantly irresolvable quality. The exhibition, his first in London for over four years, brings together a large and varied body of new work that will occupy both the Hoxton Square and Mason's Yard galleries. A painting by Gary Hume is a dynamically ambiguous visual experience. Although each work usually features a recognisable motif - such as a bird or flower - they are often flattened and fractured, and positioned awkwardly in a pictorial space that is brought to life through broad passages of colour that could be repellently acrid or seductively luscious. Negative and positive spaces fluctuate within a painting, stretching figuration to the point that lines, forms and colours start to lose their denotative function. 'Neither literal nor illusionistic,' writes Jennifer Higgie in her catalogue essay, Hume's paintings 'draw you into the depths of something you might have initially assumed was all surface.' For more information on the exhibition, visit the White Cube website.
