Statement

Gary Hume is an English artist and a leading Young British Artists (YBAs).

Hume's earliest notable works are his "door paintings", life-size representations of hospital doors. These proved a critical success, being shown in Germany and the United States, as well as attracting the attention of collector Charles Saatchi. Hume's work was included in the 1997 Sensation exhibition, a controversial touring show of Saatchi's collection which visited London, Berlin and New York.

Hume abandoned doors in the early 1990s, turning to paintings in gloss paint on aluminum. These often appropriate images from the media, including pictures of celebrities and animals. Their forms and colours are dramatically simplified, with people being reduced to just two or three colours.

He represented Britain at the 1999 Venice Biennale, where he showed his Water series, a number of superimposed line drawings of women (again, these were gloss paint on aluminium). Hume was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1996.
