Gary Hume Biography:

The painter Gary Hume, born in 1962, was one of the generation of British artists who graduated from Goldsmiths College, London and came to prominence in the early 1990s. He first received critical acclaim with a body of work known as the 'door' paintings. These minimal and abstract works, with their high gloss paint and insistent reflective surfaces, developed in the early 1990s into a more fluid and lyrical way of painting. Whilst retaining the surface quality and the flat economic language, his subject matter broadened to incorporate images.

Internationally recognised in both Europe and America, Hume has exhibited extensively around the world. In 1996 he was the British representative at the São Paulo Biennale and in the same year was nominated for the Turner Prize.

In 1999 he represented Britain at the Venice Biennale and has also had solo exhibitions at the Bonnefanten Museum, Maastricht, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, the Whitechapel Gallery, London, and Fundació 'La Caixa', Barcelona from popular culture, making portraits of celebrity figures such as Tony Blackburn, Kate Moss and Patsy Kensit.

Gary Hume is working towards painting a series of aluminums, following on from the success of the Hermaphrodite Polar Bear painting created after the first Cape Farewell voyage in May 2003, and possibly developing this work into a series of large digital works. Hume has recently had a solo exhibition in Austria in which the painting Hermaphrodite Polar Bear was featured. He has a solo show at White Cube, London in June 2006 with a new series of works entitled Cave Paintings.
