Gary Hume: Flashback



Gary Hume: Flashback is a vivid celebration of one of Britain's boldest and most influential artists, presenting paintings, prints and sculptures from an artistic career spanning over 20 years.

Gary Hume first found international fame in the early 1990s, with his series of bold, abstract ‘door paintings’. As one of the Young British Artists, 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 celebrate 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. Hume joins Bridget Riley and Anish Kapoor in this popular series of survey publications.

Gary Hume: Flashback contains 96 pages featuring a critical essay by art critic David Hickey, an interview with the artist by Caroline Douglas, and extensive reference material including a full chronology, list of solo exhibitions and inventory of the artist's works in British public collections.
