British artist Gary Hume first found international fame in the early 1990s, with his series of bold, abstract door paintings. As one of the YBAs, his work was featured in Freeze (1988) and Charles Saatchi's Sensation (1997) exhibition and he has exhibited internationally since, becoming best known for vibrant, large-scale paintings, executed in planes of bold, glossy colour. A Turner Prize nominee and Royal Academician, Hume is a key figure in twentieth-century painting and a powerful influence on younger generations of contemporary artists.
This beautifully presented hardback book is published to accompany the third exhibition in the Arts Council Collection's acclaimed Flashback series, in which early acquisitions from key international artists are juxtaposed with newer work from British collections. Gary Hume joins Bridget Riley and Anish Kapoor in this popular series of survey publications. Essay by Dave Hickey. Interview with the artist by Caroline Douglas.
