Gary Hume: Flashback

Gary Hume: Flashback
Library Shelf Location 18.HUME
Publication Date 2012

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, among others, Freeze and Charles Saatchi’s Sensation 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 20th 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 Art 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.
