Gary Hume creates paintings with distinctive colour palettes, reduced imagery, and rich surfaces. Hume has abstracted elements from an image of a wheelchair-tennis player, combining them with foliage and a soft and subtle colour palette. The large, circular form represents the wheel of the wheelchair and the black tennis ball hangs suspended in space, the tennis racquet poised to smash the ball across the net. The large circular form can also be seen as a mouth cheering from the audience. Hume has created an aspirational image celebrating summer sport in London. 1962 represented Britain at the Venice Biennale in 1999 and the São Paulo Bienal in 1996, the same year he was nominated for the Turner Prize.
His work was the subject of a one-person exhibition at Whitechapel Art Gallery in London in 1999, and in 2001 he was elected to the Royal Academy. Since then he has had one-person exhibitions at institutions across Europe, including the Kestnergesellschaft in Hanover, Tate Britain in London, Kunsthaus Bregenz in Austria, the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin, Modern Art Oxford, and Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens in Deurle, Belgium. Hume lives and works in London and Accord, New York. Presentation box in photographs not included.
