Coulsdon Artist of the week - Gary Hume


The artist, Gary Hume at his recent exhibition.

An exhibition called ‘The Indifferent Owl’ of new paintings and sculptures by Gary Hume, opens tonight at the White Cube Gallery in London.  The exhibition spans across two of The White Cubes Galleries, in Mason's Yard and Hoxton Square. 

Coulsdon Sixth Form AS Fine Art students has been looking at Gary's work recently, as part of their 'Intersections' painting project. 

The White Cube talk about the exhibition on their website, saying: 'Over the past twenty years, Hume has developed a distinctive visual language of bold, simplified forms to create paintings that engage the viewer with their pleasantly irresolvable quality. The exhibition, his first in London for over four years, brings together a large and varied body of new work' 

The online arts magazine Artinfo, also has an interview with the artist, where he talks about the exhibition and his current work.
