The video hopefully helps you to understand the process Gary Hume goes through when making works. He finds inspiration from events around him and tends to translate his reactions to them, often quite, bluntly through bright colours and simple objects. He explains the motive, I love to paint. Fair enough he’s good at it. Hume is showing at Leeds Art Gallery until 15 April 2012. The exhibition is called Flashback.
Flashback celebrates some outstanding early acquisitions of the artist’s paintings by the Arts Council Collection, including Moonbeam Rising (1994) and Four Feet in the Garden (1995), and traces a path from these early works to the present day. It brings together over 20 paintings and sculptures, including key works in British public collections such as Tate’s Water Painting (1999) and the Royal Academy of Arts’ American Tan XXVIII 1 (2008).
Following its premiere at Leeds Art Gallery the exhibition will tour to Wolverhampton Art Gallery (28 April–7 July); the new Jerwood Gallery, Hastings (14 July–23 September 2012); and Aberdeen Art Gallery (13 October 2012–19 January 2013).
